  1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly butter an 11x7 pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. Add apple slices and toss until all slices are coated with sugar/flour mixture. Set aside while you prepare your cobbler topping.
Cobbler Topping
  1. In a food processor¹, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, and pulse until combined.
  2. Scatter butter over the top of the flour mixture and then pulse again until coarse crumbs form.
  3. Add cream and pulse briefly until mixture clumps together and is a soft dough.

  4. Stir apples once more then transfer apples and any juices to prepared pan. Make sure they're spread evenly over the pan.
  5. Use your hands to evenly distribute cobbler batter over the top of the apples. It won't completely cover the apples and that's fine (see picture in post), but try to make it so that the lumps are approximately equal in size and depth so they cook evenly.
  6. Transfer cobbler to 350F oven and bake for 45-55 minutes or until topping is a light golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Allow to cool several minutes then serve. Top with vanilla ice cream or whipping cream, if desired!

Recipe Notes

¹If you don't have a food processor, you can simply whisk the dry ingredients together, cut in the butter with a pastry cutter, and stir in the heavy cream by hand instead.
