Apple Cranberry Cobbler
This is a fabulous dessert for the Holidays! This one, however, isn't one of my own. But it is SINFULLY delicious! I make it this time of year..... along with the mandatory lefse - being from Norway it would be a kind of corrupt table without lefse - but that's another recipe!
5 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold butter or margarine
1/4 cup milk
In a large saucepan, combine the apples, sugar, cranberries, tapioca, cinnamon and water. Let stand for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Cook and stir 3 minutes longer. Pour into a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Dot with butter.
In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in milk to form a soft dough. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls over hot apple mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until topping is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into topping comes out clean.
