Apple Cobbler

I just love to bake with apples.  I especially love the aroma of them wafting all throughout my home.  It makes me feel comforted and warm.  Exactly what you need on a brisk fall day like today.  I think that it is one of the safest fruits to work with.  It pretty much goes with everything, you can always find them in season and just about everyone likes them.  This cobbler recipe is just as perfect for apples as it is for peaches, pears or blueberries.  No matter what type of ripened fruit you use, the rest of the ingredients stay the same. 

1/2 cup of real un-salted butter (melted)
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1 cup of brown sugar (packed)
3 tsp. of baking powder
1/4 tsp. of salt
1 cup of milk
6 medium tart baking apples (cored and thinly sliced)
1 T. of juice from 1/2 of a fresh lemon
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. of ground nutmeg

-Preheat your oven to 375*.   Pour your melted butter into the bottom of a 9"x13" baking dish.  In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and the salt. Slowly pour in the milk and stir until just wet.  Layer this batter over the melted butter layer in the baking dish.  DO NOT STIR THEM TOGETHER.  Then is a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat bring the apples, lemon juice and the sugar to a boil (while constantly stirring).  Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the cinnamon and the nutmeg.  Again pour this mixture over the first 2 layers in the baking dish without stirring them together.  While it is baking it will combine as much as it needs to.  Bake for 40-45 minutes.  Serve with some vanilla bean ice cream and cool whip.  Serves 9.  Enjoy!
