Apricot Cobbler

We have an amazing apricot tree in our front yard and this year it produced SO much fruit! Last year I tackled apricot jam (which we still have in the cupboard... yikes!) and this year I decided to try making an apricot cobbler. I've made apple cobbler but never peach or anything like that and I figured since the jam turned out yummy cobbler would be a good summer dessert!
I started with a big bowl of apricots!
I washed them and removed any stems or leaves then cut them in half. LEAVE THE SKINS ON! They basically dissolve when cooked [both in the jam and in the cobbler].
I tossed the apricots with:
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon per 1 cup of Apricots 
While these sit and begin to release their juices I made the topping:

3/4 Cup of all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch of salt
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter 
(Note: If you do not have unsalted butter - use regular butter and withhold the pinch of salt)
1/2 cup heavy cream (or sweetened vanilla coffee creamer) 

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and cut in butter using a pastry cutter or by criss crossing butter knives.

Place apricots into baking pan 

And add the topper - it will be slightly crumbly. 
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the top of it!

And place into a 400 degree oven 

and bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown!
