Ahhh rainy days in the Pacific Northwest calls for some comfort food on a Sunday afternoon with a movie and good company… when the rain pours all day on a Sunday and you just feel like indulging in some good ole comfort food, well apple cobbler hits the spot every time! I can’t take all the credit for this one, my friend suggested we make apple cobbler…so off to store for the goods and we were ready to get baking…
We used Granny Smith and Braeburn apples for the rustic ambiance we left the peels on. Last night we were experimenting with some Latin flavors and had some left over mexican cinnamon sticks from the night before…oh yeah, we did Mexican night, and it was off the hook, maybe I’ll save that one for a later post! Anyway, you might be asking “Is there really a difference in Mexican Cinnamom sticks vs. our American sticks”? Oh yeah, definitely! Once you grind them down, the aroma is so sweet with a little kick, it’s very tasty, so if you get the chance, hop over to your local Mexican grocery store or ethic food aisle and check out the cinnamon sticks in the little plastic baggies and pick them up for some real flavor!
Toss the sliced apples in Cinnamon and lemon juice, it makes all the difference! The taste will have your taste buds jumping for joy! A party in your mouth for sure!
Ready for the oven, oh the anticipation….hurry up, bake, bake, bake…..
