Using our Ad Hoc cobbler mix, you can prepare a home-baked dessert with a buttery golden topping in no time.


  • 3 1/2 lb. each Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples, peeled, cored and each cut into 8 slices
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3 Tbs. cornstarch
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 pints blackberries
  • 1 package Ad Hoc cobbler mix


In a large bowl, stir together the apples, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, cornstarch, lemon zest and lemon juice. Transfer to a large cassoulet, cover and set over medium heat. Cook the apples, stirring occasionally, until almost tender, about 45 minutes. Fold in the blackberries.

Preheat an oven to 350°F.

Prepare the cobbler mix according to the package instructions. Drop mounds of dough (each 2 to 3 Tbs.) over the filling, leaving some space between the mounds for the dough to spread. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar (included with the cobbler mix) on top. (Mound leftover dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 12 to 14 minutes; serve with the cobbler.)

Bake the cobbler, uncovered, until the topping is golden brown, about 35 minutes. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. Serves 10 to 12.
