Apple Cobbler Recipe


Serves: 8


  • 1¾ lbs medium cooking apples (jonathans or wealthies)
  • 1½ tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • ¼ tsp salt, divided
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar substitute*
  • ½ cup flour
  • 3 tbsp margarine

*Note: Not all artificial sweeteners keep their sweetness when baked at high temps. Acesulfame-K, Splenda and Sweet-n-Low would work OK in this recipe; Equal or aspartame probably would not.


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Prepare inside of a 9" pie plate with vegetable pan-coating.
  3. Pare apples, remove cores, and cut apples into 1/2" slices; measure 4 cups.
  4. Combine cornstarch, spice, 1/8 tsp salt, and sweetener; mix thoroughly.
  5. Add to apples and stir lightly with a fork to coat all slices.
  6. Spread apples evenly in prepared pie plate; set aside.
  7. Mix together flour and remaining 1/8 tsp salt.
  8. Cut in margarine with pastry blender until crumbly; scatter all over top of apples.
  9. Bake about 35 minutes or until top is golden brown. Serve warm.
