    Spiced Cranberry Apple Cobbler
  • 4 cups cranberries
  • 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon flour, divided
  • 4 tablespoons butter, cut into bits
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening (I use butter flavored)
  • 1-1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine cranberries, apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, ground cloves and 1 tablespoon flour in 3-quart baking dish. Mix evenly and dot top with butter bits

Stir together remaining 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Cut shortening in using pastry blender or 2 knives until crumbly. Add sour cream and blend well (dough will be sticky).

Drop dough by spoonfuls on top of fruit mixture. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 20 to 30 minutes on middle rack until top is golden.

This cobbler is outstanding served with Cinnamon Vanilla ice cream. It is hard to find in stores so I make my own. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to a pint of softened vanilla ice cream and re-freeze. When ready to serve, put a big scoop on top on each bowl of warm cobbler. Yum!
