I’ve come to the understanding that any dessert with cream cheese in it warrants adding ‘cheesecake’ to its name. So there.
This is one of those idea-recipes that should never be followed exactly and should instead inspire superior imitations.
Does everyone know what cobbler is? Because I didn’t. I knew it had something to do with shoes though. And also that it’s a really cool name for an occupation.
“So what do you do?”
“I’m a cobbler. I cobble.”
Because it’s also a verb…we can cobble!
We can cobble shoes and apparently also food, and then proceed to refer to it as ‘cobbler’. So it’s not just people that can be cobblers. Apples can also be cobblers. But unlike people, apples cannot cobble. I hope we are now all on the same page.
So here’s what I did:
Cook 4 little apples with 1 tbs butter, 2 tbs sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. This really does turn out delicious all by itself.
For the top layer, I used 2 tbs of butter, cream cheese, sugar and flour. (I thought it would be an easy measurement to remember). And an egg, vanilla, some salt and about ¼ tsp baking soda. I really have no idea how people know how much baking soda/powder to use for anything so this was an entirely random decision. Also I would add much more cream cheese next time.
Layer this on the apples and it should be done in 15 mins at 175C.
It comes out pretty cleanly but you can mush it about and eat it like a pudding if you’re a pudding person.
