Apple Cobbler with Mixed Fruit

Apple and Mixed Fruit Cobbler

When anyone comes to my house for dinner, they will almost always be served a fruit crumble or cobbler. I find them easy to make, and somewhat healthy because they’re loaded with fruit. Not to mention, they are really tasty! 

This cobbler uses apples, which is always nice in a dessert. The type of apple you use makes a difference because some are crunchier than others. The super crunchy apples don’t soften as well and the super soft apples, like macintosh and red delicious, will turn your cobbler to mush. My first choice for cobbler is a Spartan apple, but any other medium hard apple will do.
