With the arrival of September and the return to school, parents are looking for ideas to fill those lunch boxes. Pack your kids up with mini portions of this apple-almond cobbler, and you’ll get major bonus points. Apples are in season and you can’t go wrong with all the apple varieties on offer.

Apple-Almond Cobbler


  • 5 cups apples (thinly sliced)
  • 3/4 cup almonds (finely chopped)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg (ground)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter (melted)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees

Using two tablespoons of butter, lightly grease a round glass baking dish, such as an 8-inch pie or cake dish. Place the apples in the prepared pan, skin side down in a radial pattern. You may need to cut some apple pieces to fully fill the center of the pan. Sprinkle the apples with 1/2 cup of the almonds.

In a small bowl stir together 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, sprinkle over the apples and almonds. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, and baking powder. In a small mixing bowl combine the egg, evaporated milk and melted butter or margarine. Stir into the flour mixture until smooth. Pour evenly over apples. Sprinkle with remaining almonds.

Bake in a 325 degrees oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

For lunchboxes, portion the cobbler into reusable containers. Take some with you to work, as well. This makes a great snack in the afternoon.
