Foodie Friday: Individual Apple Cobblers

Sorry this is a day late. I hope that it isn't a dollar short. I have been wanting to make something with apples for a while now. It is the whole fall feeling. I even went as far as buying some green Granny Smiths a week ago. There they sat on the counter, getting sad because no one was eating them. I contemplated making Pinwheel Apple Cobbler I also thought about these Apple Dumplings on Pioneer Woman's blog, but in the end I settled for plane old apple cobbler. This time, however, I decided to make it in individual servings just for something fun.

I cut up three green Granny Smiths and added 1/3 cup of sugar and 1 T. of cinnamon. After greasing four ramekins, I filled each with the apple mixture. Using a pastry blender, I blended 3 T. of butter into 1/2 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of oatmeal, 1/8 cup of white sugar, 1/8 cup of brown sugar, and 1 T. cinnamon. I topped each ramekin with the butter/flour crumbs and baked for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

We tried to whip up our own cream, but unfortunately half and half doesn't whip well. We had it in the house and I thought that it was worth a try, oh well. After they cooled, we each enjoyed our own mini-cobbler and now have two more waiting in the fridge. (Okay, they are really calling my name right now, but I will try to wait until afternoon to gobble my cobbler.)

I used to make one of these when I was making a large pan for our family and then share the small one with the elderly neighbor couple.
