Bisquick Apple Cobbler with Fresh Apples

I love fruit cobblers. They are easy to make at home, and you only need a few ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen. All you need to do is put them in a casserole dish and bake them until they’re perfect!

To make a great apple cobbler, you need a topping that is like a biscuit. It should be tender and crumble easily. Then the topping should also taste good with the fruity filling.

Cinnamon and nutmeg mixed with fresh apples make a sweet, almost savory, and comforting flavor. This is perfect for fall… or anytime you want a classic apple pie taste quickly!

My Bisquick Apple Cobbler dessert is full of tasty apples and topped with an easy-to-make biscuit crumble for a simple, wholesome, easy dessert recipe the family will love. It’s so simple, and you can even prepare it while making dinner.

What are the Best Apples to Bake With

This easy apple cobbler recipe is great as it is easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. Plus, you can use any type of apple you have on hand.

I use Granny Smith or Honey Crisp for making apple pie filling when baking an apple cobbler, apple crisp, or apple pie. But, you can use other types of apples with this recipe that uses Bisquick.

The types of apples you might want to use for cobbler are:

  • Granny Smith Apples: crisp and tart, all purpose apple.
  • Golden Delicious: mellow flavor balanced flavor, all purpose apple.
  • Braeburn: firm, aromatic, sweet-tart, juicy apple.
  • Pink Lady: crisp and tangy, with a balance of tart and sweet.
  • Honey Crisp: crisp and sweet, with a hint of tart flavor.
  • Jazz: tangy and sweet, with a crunch.
  • Fuji: crisp, and super-sweet.

Ingredients for Bisquick Apple Cobbler Recipe

  • Apples
  • Sugar
  • Instant tapioca
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg
  • Bisquick
  • Milk
  • Butter

Ingredient Notes

You can make the best fluffy and flaky biscuit topping by using whole or 2% milk. The fat in these types of milk will help the biscuits to rise the best. If you don’t want to use whole or 2% milk, you can use nonfat or lactose-free milk, but they won’t be as tender.

Baking tip: You will need 3/4 cup of sugar to make this apple cobbler recipe with Bisquick using Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples. If you use a sweet apple-like Honey Crisp or Fuji, reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup, unless you like really sweet baked goods.

Equipment Used for Bisquick Recipe with Apple

TFN Tip: You can use a sharp vegetable peeler for quick and easy peeling of apples. Just like knives, they dull over time. A sharp peeler will glide right over your apples.

I also like to use an apple corer to cut the apple into wedges. Then I can easily slice the apple wedges into thin slices, like in the photo below.

How to Make Apple Cobbler with Bisquick

First, mix the apple slices, sugar, spices, and tapioca. Then let the apples sit for about 15 minutes so the tapioca can “activate.” This will create the perfect cobbler consistency when baked.

As the apple slices mixture rests, make the easy Bisquick biscuit topping by mixing the Bisquick, sugar, butter, and milk.

Grease a casserole or baking dish and put in the apples. Then, drop the biscuit mix by spoonfuls on top of the apples. Bake for about 45 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the fruit filling is bubbling hot.

How to Serve Apple Cobbler with Bisquick

I love to enjoy homemade apple and Bisquick cobbler served warm and topped with any (or all) of these:

  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Cream cheese
