Apple Cobbler


3-4 Cans of your favorite Apple Pie Filling (any pie filling will work)
1 box of your favorite dry cake mix (I use Duncan Hines White)
1 cube butter

Place pie filling in a greased 9 x 13 dish. Place dry cake mix over over pie filling. Slice butter into small pieces and place over cake mix.


Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. As the cobbler cooks the butter cooks down and the juices cook up. It makes a perfect cobbler crust.
Ingredient Alternatives:
Instead of using butter pore 1/2-1 can of sprite over dry cake mix. The amount of sprite will depend on the thickness of your pie filling. I usually use 1/2 a can.

or using fresh apples peal and slice into wedges. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar then add your cake mix.

Homemade Cobbler Crust:
2 cups flour or 1 1/2 cups flour and 1 cup dry oats
1 cube softened butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
(I like mine really sweet because we usually don't add as much sugar to our pie filling) Mix to a crumble and spread over apples.

For Dutch Oven:
Butter the inside of your dutch oven or wrap with tin foil. Place ingredient in dutch oven and cover. Place dutch oven over 8-10 hot coals. On top of dutch oven place 15-20 hot coals. (This depends on the size of your dutch oven. I use a 14" dutch oven.) For a standard 10 in" oven its about 4 hot coals for each 100 degrees. Bake for about 30 minutes. Check every 10 minutes and rotate oven 1/2 turn. Always place more hot coals on top of the dutch oven. This helps with even cooking. Enjoy.
