Apricot Cobbler is an easy recipe that is made with slices of fresh apricots tossed in brown sugar and cinnamon then topped with an old-fashioned drop biscuit dough. It's the perfect late spring, early summer dessert recipe to serve for family and friends and pairs especially well with a scoop of rich, creamy ice cream.
Servings: 8 servings
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine the apricots, brown sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch in a large bowl. Toss gently to combine, set aside.
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.
