Apple Cobbler with Almond Topping | Share

This recipe is nice and fruity with just the right amount of pastry. Use your favorite baking apples. I prefer Spartans since they have a mellow, sweet taste and soften nicely when baked. For a variation, add cherries and raisins (see French Apple Cobbler variation in recipe notes). The almond topping makes this dessert all the more temping..
