Tim's "Famous" Apple Cobbler

We are blessed with a wonderful apple tree and it's that time of year!  My husband makes a great apple pie, but my favorite is his apple cobbler.  It's a little more work but very much worth the time!  I will post the recipe now and update later with a picture ... we ate the last one before I remembered to take a picture!

Tim and Una making apple cobbler - Una loves to
help in the kitchen (well, the cooking part,
not so much with the cleaning up!)
Apple Cobbler

4 cups sliced, peeled apples
1-1/3 cups sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (this is the secret ingredient that makes it so YUMMY!)
6 T butter
1-1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place apples in a 1-1/2 quart baking dish.  Sprinkle apples with 1 cup sugar, cinnamon, and almond extract; dot with 2T butter.  Mix flour, baking powder, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt together in large bowl.  Cut in 4T butter until mixture is slightly coarser than cornmeal.  Combine egg and milk in separate bowl; pour into flour mixture.  Stir just enough to combine and spoon over apples in baking dish.  Bake for 30 minutes, until browned.  Serve alone or with whipped cream, sour cream, or ice cream.

(We call this Tim's Famous Apple Cobbler but it's from an old cookbook called Creative Cooking:  Desserts dated 1992.  It has some great recipes - simple and delicious!)
