I really wanted to do a healthy recipe next, but apparently my stomach had other ideas, because instead I found myself buying apples to do my mother’s apple cobbler that I grew up eating. It’s actually properly called a clafouti, but it still falls in the cobbler class of desserts, so I keep calling it that. You can do it with really any type of fruit, but with all the great apples around right now, it’d be a shame not to use them. Other favorite fruit combinations of mine are triple berry, blackberry nectarine, and I’ve recently been pondering a pear with grated gruyere in it, courtesy of Pushing Daisies.
