So now that you’re all entered to win a great prize, how about a recipe??!! Instead of making one big cobbler, I decided to make individual cobblers so that everyone could have their own and they could be “customized” for each family member. Some people wanted nuts, some wanted more caramel, etc. You could take your favorite cobbler or crisp recipes and make them into individual mugs, but be sure your mugs are oven safe!!!
Peel, core, and chop the apples into small pieces. You could substitute pears. You can use any good baking apple or use a few varieties and mix them up.
Mix in some flour, cinnamon, caramel, and Amaretto with the apples. Then you can either microwave or cook your apples on the stovetop to soften. You can skip cooking the apples but be forewarned that the topping for your cobbler may be baked before your apples are soft and then your apples will be hard.
While your apples are cooking, prepare the cobbler topping by mixing together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon then mix in the caramel, Amaretto, melted butter, milk,and the Land O’ Lakes egg.
Spoon the apples into the bottom of mugs that have been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and placed on a large baking sheet.
Then spoon the cobbler topping over the apples. You can drizzle more caramel on top and/or sprinkle chopped nuts on top if you want but you don’t have to.
Bake them in the oven until a toothpick inserted into the topping comes out clean. Top the cobblers with your favorites such as more caramel, nuts, whipped cream, and/or ice cream.
These are best served warm! Enjoy!
Hope you enjoy!

Such a fun fall idea. Great way to use fresh apples.
Tried this recipe tonight, was not impressed at all. The filling was very dry and had no flavor. The apples were quite bland as well…very disappointed.

Sorry you didn’t enjoy it. My family loves it. You can always add more spices depending on what kind of flavors you like. Results can also vary depending on your apples.
This recipe looks AMAZING!! As do so many of your others. My first time here but definitely not my last. Congratulations on creating a fantastic blog!
I tried this recipe in mini oven-proof cups, and it worked like a charm. Will be sure to add it to our fall dessert buffet.
Oh Christine, so glad they turned out well for you. I always get a little nervous when other people try my recipes. :) Thanks for letting me know. I appreciate it! :)
i`m loooking forward to trying this,i just wonder how do you know if your mug is oven safe??
Debbie, most (non-plastic) mugs are probably ok, however, if they are oven proof they should generally say on the bottom of the mug.
This looks so yummy and do-able! And I still have orchard apples to use up! Would Golden Delicious and/or Empire apples work?
Any apples/pears will work, just a matter of what kind of apples you like and what you like to bake with. You’ll get slightly different results/texture/taste with different kinds but it will work.

I love this idea! It’s more fun to eat out of a mug rather than a plain old bowl or plate. Thanks for sharing. I’ll have to try it out.
