This French Apple Cobbler is delicious and comes together so fast! The baked apples are great with the vanilla baked topping and work perfectly with vanilla ice cream on top!
If you love apple pie, you’re going to love this easy French Apple Cobbler! This dessert has all the flavors you crave – apples, baking spices, vanilla – paired with a biscuit-like topping that’ll have you seriously considering taking the last portion with no thought for anyone else. My family like their cobbler with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, but you can serve it plain or even put a slice of cheddar cheese on top. No matter how you like it, this recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth!

During the holidays we like to eat my mom’s apple pie, but this year we had so many family members together that we didn’t feel like making it the day before and instead decided to hang out with everyone. We still wanted the flavors though so I looked for a recipe for a quick apple dessert. I was originally looking for a standard cobbler with a crumble topping as a replacement for our apple pie, but this worked better.
It came together VERY fast and it bakes fast. It goes great with vanilla ice cream and everyone will love it. This dessert gave us the chance to eat a super yummy dessert and spend more time with the family. It was a big hit with everyone too.

Tools used in this French Apple Cobbler recipe
Pie Plate: A good pie plate is a kitchen essential for any home baker. I really like this plate! It’s a little deeper than your standard pie plate and has a lip that makes decorative edges easy.
Mixing Bowl: These mixing bowls get used just about every day at my house. The grip handle makes them easy to hold and the pour spout makes them perfect for batters!
Rubber Spatula: Rubber spatulas are one of those kitchen tools you don’t realize how much you use until they’re all dirty. This set of three spatulas in various sizes and shapes will make cooking everything from dinner to dessert a breeze.
Ice Cream Scoop: We eat a lot of ice cream and my house and I’ve gone through countless ice cream scoops of the years. This scoop is hands down my favoirte. It cuts into the ice cream easily and the ice cream comes right out.
