Apple-Cranberry Cobbler
Makes 8 servings
  • Crust:
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons ice water
  • Filling:
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 6 medium Gala apples, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1½ teaspoons apple pie spice
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 2 teaspoons sparkling sugar
  1. For crust: In the work bowl of a food processor, place flour, cornmeal, and salt; pulse until combined. Add butter and pulse until mixture is crumbly. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing until a dough forms. Turn out dough, and shape into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. For filling: In a small bowl, combine cranberries and 1 cup boiling water. Let stand until softened, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together cranberries and apples. Sprinkle with granulated sugar, flour, lemon juice, apple pie spice, and salt; toss well.
  5. Spoon into a shallow 11x7-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with butter.
  6. Let dough stand at room temperature until slightly softened, about 10 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12½x8½-inch rectangle. Trim to straighten edges. Cut dough lengthwise into 7 equal strips. Place 3 strips of dough lengthwise over filling. Place remaining 4 strips of dough crosswise over filling. Trim excess dough.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 2 teaspoons water; brush over dough. Sprinkle with sparkling sugar.
  8. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 40 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
