apple cobbler

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

Flour Mixture:

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.

Apple Mixture:

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.

Cinnamon Cream:

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.
