If you have apples on hand, you probably have everything you need to make this Apple Cobbler. It feeds a crowd and fills your home with the most amazing aroma of cinnamon and sugar. The recipe is unique in that the butter is first melted in the pan in the preheating oven, and then a quick and easy batter is poured over the top.

If you don’t have one, but love to make apple desserts and homemade applesauce, you definitely need one!
