Ingredients
Apple Filling:
  • 5 1/4 Cups peeled, sliced apples; (4 to 6 apples)
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons melted butter
Pecan Shortcake Crust:
  • 1 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 Cup melted butter
  • 1/2 Cup whipping cream or 2% low fat milk
Vanilla Glaze:
  • 1 1/3 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 Cup whole milk or 2% low fat milk
  • 1/4 Cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Grease an 8-inch-square baking pan or dish.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, carefully spoon together apples, brown sugar, honey, tapioca, lemon juice, cinnamon, and chopped pecans.
  4. Pour apple filling into greased pan or dish; drizzle melted butter on top and set aside.
  5. To make the crust: In another large bowl, combine crust ingredients. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon about 30 seconds until a stiff dough forms.
  6. Spoon pecan dough on top of apple-pecan filling to create a cobblestone effect.
  7. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool 15 minutes before adding glaze.
  8. To make the glaze: While cobbler is cooling, prepare glaze. In a medium saucepan, stir powdered sugar and milk over low to medium heat until smooth, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla. Set aside to cool about 5 minutes; then pour over cooled cobbler to form glaze. Serve immediately.
Notes
