Apple Cream Cheese Cobbler

Apple Cream Cheese Cobbler

I’m always down for easy desserts! This Apple Cream Cheese Cobbler is my go to dish when I want to impress company without fooling around with flour, eggs, milk, etc. Baking is not one of my favorite tasks. So, whenever I’m able to cut corners, I cut them! But, you’d never be able to tell by the taste.

Start with a good quality cream cheese. Make sure that you give it enough time sitting out of the fridge to come to room temperature. We want it good and soft. Softened cream cheese is a breeze to blend.

I use two blocks. But, if you’d prefer a thinner layer of cream cheese, just use 1 1/2 blocks.

Canned apple pie filling adds to the ease of this recipe. No apple peeling necessary! You can also use canned peaches, apricots, or cherries instead.

Bake until the crust is a nice, golden brown color. If you find that the crust is starting to brown faster than the inside is baking, just cover the top with aluminum foil. We don’t want to take it out too soon. The inside crescent rolls will be doughy and uncooked.

I serve this easy cobbler with fresh whipped cream. French vanilla ice cream would be a dream topper as well. But, it’s just as delicious served as is!

Happy Baking,
