I can officially wish everyone a very HAPPY FALL! Oddly enough I look forward to fall more than any other season, even though right on its tail is winter. Fall is a time of beauty and amazing flavors, plus the temps are less “icky” and if you know me at all, you’ll know that sticky weather and Lori do not mix well. So bring on the cooler temps!

This is my first time participating in #AppleWeek, and I’m so excited to be debuting 4 brand spanking new apple recipes this week. I’m so excited to be participating!

Allow me to introduce you to my first #AppleWeek recipe: Dutch Apple Cobbler with Cheesecake Topping. There are 4 layers to this dessert. Beginning with a nice layer of baked cinnamon apples topped with a tender cobbler layer and next a crumble layer. The ending is what sets this dessert over the edge, a cheesecake topping that goes on while the cobbler is still warm. Don’t let the steps intimidate you, they are all simple and the end result is worth it, trust me.

Now before you fret about “Is this really a cobbler, or a cake? This lady doesn’t even know!” I’ll go with its somewhere in between, the “batter” gets plopped on top of the baked apple layer and isn’t necessarily uniform. So perhaps more of “dump cake” look…truthfully I like the word cobbler vs. dump, that’s just me.

Swiss Diamond provided me with a gorgeous Swiss Diamond Cast Iron 8.9 Oval Casserole. I’m in love with the color, size, and quality of this cookware. Versatile and elegant I’m delighted with this new addition to my kitchen and it made the perfect dish to use for this #AppleWeek recipe.
