Why This Apple Cobbler Is Named After My Friend, Karen

When I was a newlywed 40 years ago, my husband and I moved from Southern California to a small town in Southern Oregon. I was privileged to meet a woman named Karen at the church where my husband was the Music Pastor.

Karen sang in our choir, had an amazing voice, and an even sweeter personality and infectious laugh. She graciously invited us over for meals, became a dear friend, and even let me do our laundry at her home several times… THAT was also a huge gift because it meant I didn’t have to hang out at the local laundromat for hours.

Karen made this apple cobbler for us once (40 years ago), and I loved it.  Being a newlywed, and loving to cook, I asked her if she would share her recipe with me. She laughed and told me how incredibly easy it was to make (a big plus!), and gave it to me.

I named the recipe after her and wrote it on the recipe card, so I wouldn’t ever forget who gave it to me. I’ve made this recipe many times over the years, and finally decided to add it to my blog.  Karen passed away quite suddenly in 2014, but her sweet spirit, love, zest for life, and memories live on in every person she poured herself into, including ME!

So, Just How EASY Is This Apple Cobbler To Make?

Here’s how to make this… it’s so very EASY!  Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly grease a 13×9 pan (or two smaller sized pans) with non-stick spray.  Spread fruit pie filling evenly in pan.

Apple pie filling is spread into baking pans.In medium bowl, mix butter, yellow cake mix and chopped nuts until crumbly.

Butter is blended into dry ingredients using a pastry blender.

Chopped pecans are added to dry ingredients for cobbler

Dry ingredients, butter and pecans are crumbly and ready to top apple cobbler.

Sprinkle this dry mixture evenly over the apple pie filling. The cobbler is usually made in a 9×13 pan, but this time I made it in a square pan (8×8) and a 9 inch cake pan, so I could give one away to a friend recovering from surgery, yet still have one for our family.

Crumb topping has been placed on top of the apple pie filling in baking pan.

Bake at 350° F. for approximately 30 minutes, or until bubbly and crumb mixture is light golden brown on top. Remove pan to a wire rack and let cool down slightly before serving.

Two pans of Karen's delicious apple cobbler are cooling on wire rack after baking.

Once cobbler has cooled down a bit, serve up individual portions.  This cobbler tastes best served slightly warm, with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
