What apples are best for Apple Cobbler?
If you are an apple lover like myself than you are in seventh heaven and tickled pink. Every year some new delicious apple variety hits the market. The people that produce and grow these new gems have really gotten good at this. Gone are the days when your Mom handed you a mealy red delicious that you had to eat. Now you can’t wait to bite into a amazing Honey Crisp or a Pink Lady. What a long way we have come with apples.
Any apple that is good for baking is perfect in this cobbler. I like to include a variety of sweet and tart apples. It is important to pick apples that don’t break down when cooked. My favorites are Honeycrisp, Braeburn, Pink Lady, Gala and Granny Smith. Include a variety of those and you can’t go wrong.
