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!
