The apple harvest is coming soon. We found this delightful cobbler creation from Soy Connection that is perfect for family gatherings or to just have something sweet around the house.
2 cups of All-purpose flour
½ cup sugar
¾ tsp salt
½ U.S. grown soybean shortening (cut into pieces)
¼ cup unsalted butter (cut into pieces)
2 egg yolks beaten
2 TBSP of ice water
2 pounds of Granny Smith Apples (peeled, cored and cut into ¼ inch slices)
¼ brown sugar (packed)
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar and ½ tsp salt and process until well blended. Add soybean shortening and butter, pulse until a coarse crumble forms. Then add egg yolks and ice water, and mix until dough mixes.
Pat ¾ of the dough into a 11/7-inch pan and chill while preparing the apples.
In a large bowl, combine the apples, brown sugar, remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, lemon juice and vanilla.
Transfer to the pan and crumble the remaining crust on the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and apple mixture is bubbly.
1 cup heavy cream
1 TBSP Powdered Sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
Beat together all ingredients until lightly whipped. Serve with cobbler.
