“An all time favorite, this swirled cobbler is moist and juicy yet flaky on top.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in 13x9x2 baking dish or sheet cake pan. In a saucepan heat sugar and apple juice until sugar melts.
  2. Cut shortening into flour until particles are like fine crumbs. Add milk and stir with a fork only until dough leaves sides of the bowl. Turn out onto lightly floured board or pastry cloth, knead until smooth.
  3. Roll dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon over apples; then sprinkle apple evenly over the dough. Roll up like a jelly roll. Dampen the edge of the dough with a little water and seal. Slice dough into about 16 slices, 1/2 inch thick. Place in pan with melted butter. Pour sugar syrup carefully around rolls. (this looks like too muc liquid, but the crust will absorb it.).
  5. Bake for 55 - 60 minutes.
