9/21/14 ChefElla's Cinnamon Roll Apple Cobbler

Fall is the best time for apples.  Every year my Grandmother takes me to an apple orchard to pick apples from the trees.  The orchard is so fun to visit and you can buy and try so many different apple foods while you are there, fresh apples, dried apples, apple candy, caramel apples, apple cider, and apple pies.  My Grandmother makes so many different kinds of desserts with her apples, pies, cakes, jams, cookies and more.  This year I wanted to make my own apple dessert.  I like apple cobbler.  The dough soaks up the syrup and the juice and everything tastes so good together.  This is my own version of apple cobbler.  I hope you like it as much as my family and friends did.  It is fun to use foods that are in season, and it is even more fun to make up your own recipes with them.

For this recipe you will need to use a knife and the oven.  If you are not allowed to use a knife
or the oven by yourself you can have a grown up help.
1. Wash your hands.
2. For this recipe you will need measuring spoons and cups, a whisk, a knife, a cutting board, a
    large mixing bowl, a small bowl, a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, a cookie sheet, and an 8X8
    baking pan.

Cinnamon Roll Apple Cobbler (This recipe will make 8-10 servings)
2 Rolls         Refrigerated Cinnamon Dough With Icing, 12.4 oz package
4 -5 ea.         Apples, Cored and Sliced Thin
                      -I used Gala apples for my apple bake, but you can use your favorite kind.
1/4 Cup        Caramel Sauce
1/4 Cup        Light Brown Sugar
1 Tbl              Butter, Melted
1/4 tsp          Cinnamon
1/4 tsp          Apple Pie Spice
2 tsp              Vanilla
1 Tbl              Cornstarch

3. Pre-heat oven to 375F.
4. In your large bowl, whisk together Caramel, Brown Sugar, Melted Butter, Cinnamon, Apple Pie
     Spice, Vanilla, and Cornstarch.
5. Mix sliced apples with caramel mixture.
6. Take 6 pieces of cinnamon dough and flatten with your hands.  Place in the bottom of your pan.
    The rolls should cover the whole bottom of the pan.

7. Add apple mix on top of the cinnamon rolls.

8. Press remaining cinnamon rolls flat and top apples making a crust.

9. Place cobbler on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.  The cookie sheet will keep
    any brown sugar mixture that escapes the pan from burning to the bottom of your oven.
10.  Remove cobbler from the oven and cover lightly with aluminum foil.
11.  Return cobbler to the oven and bake for another 30 minutes.
12.  Remove cobbler from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes.  Warm frosting and top cobbler.

Serve cobbler with ice cream, caramel, our your favorite topping.
