What better way to transform a bag of bruised apples? This time of year, bruised apples can be had super-cheap, at farmer's markets and the like.
The nice thing about this particular cobbler is that because of all the butter, the topping will spread to cover the entire top while baking.
1 stick cold butter, in pieces
3 lbs apples, peeled, cored and cut into pieces
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Butter a 9-in square baking dish. Put the apples in a bowl and toss with half the sugar. Place in the buttered dish. Combine the dry ingredients along with remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a food processor, and pulse a couple of times. Add the butter and process for 10 seconds, until well-blended. Add the egg and vanilla by hand.
Drop mixture onto the apples (do not spread out). Bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes.
