Best Ever Apple Cobbler

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 775


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sifted self-rising flour
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups finely chopped apples


Heat oven to 350°. Melt butter in 9x13-inch baking pan. In a saucepan, heat sugar and water till sugar melts. Meanwhile, cut shortening into flour until particles are like fine crumbs. Add milk and stir with fork only until dough leaves side of bowl. Turn out onto floured board, and knead until smooth. Roll dough into large rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle cinnamon over apples, then sprinkle apples evenly over dough. Roll up dough like a jellyroll. Dampen the edge with a little water to seal. Slice dough into 1-2-inch thick slices. Place in pan of melted butter. Pour sugar syrup carefully around rolls. (This looks like too much liquid, but the crust will absorb it.) Bake 55–60 minutes.

Variation: This cobbler may be made with other fresh, frozen, or canned fruits, such as blackberries, blueberries, cherries, or peaches. If packed in liquid, drain and substitute for part of sugar syrup. Always use 2 cups liquid.
