Apricot Filling

Cobbler Dough


Apricot Filling

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine the apricots, brown sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch in a large bowl. Toss gently to combine, set aside.

Cobbler Dough

  • Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add the pieces of butter and cut in with a pastry blender, fork or your fingers until the butter is in pea-size pieces.
  • Whisk together the egg and milk. Pour into the bowl of the flour and stir gently until just combined.
  • Spread the apricots and any accumulated juices into a medium baking dish.
  • Top with dollops of the cobbler dough. Sprinkle with extra sugar, if desired.
  • Cover loosely with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  • Serve as is, or with vanilla ice cream.



Tips and Techniques

  • Fresh apricots work best, but you can use an equal amount of canned apricots, if needed.
  • Depending on the ripeness of your apricots, you may want to add more brown sugar to the filling.
  • Store leftovers tightly covered in the refrigerator. Consume within 4-5 days for best results.
