This apple cobbler recipe has a nutty twist! It’s a delicious combo that makes a perfect dessert.
This apple cobbler recipe is nothing short of perfect for the holidays. It’s light on the stomach (great after a heavy, holiday meal!), full of delicious, apple and cinnamon flavor and smells like pure heaven while it’s in the oven. Seriously, when people smell your kitchen, they may never leave again. I leave it up to you to decide if that’s a good thing…
Personally, I LOVE it when people gather around the kitchen. All that laughter and warm conversation; the smells of a holiday meal cooking in the oven; the occasional wafting aroma of a wonderfully comforting cup of coffee; and best of all, the general, relaxed atmosphere that says, “everybody is safe, happy and enjoying themselves”.
This cobbler definitely exudes that feeling.
And since this year is a bit different, this is a great dessert to enjoy for smaller gatherings as well. Plus, it freezes well if you have leftovers that won’t get eaten right away.
Pull the family into the kitchen and get them to help you! Great memories are always made in the kitchen. And making apple cobbler will certainly be a sweet addition to those memories.
