I just can’t get enough of this satisfying classic comfort food! Here are all the reasons why cobbler is more than an excellent fall dessert!

  • It’s a great way to make a knockout dessert and use up those leftover apples.
  • You can easily change it to be any type of fruit cobbler recipe by changing out the type of fruit!

Where did Bisquick come from?

Well, Wikipedia says it was created in the 1930s and you can read all about that here. It’s really just flour, baking powder, salt, and fat. Bisquick uses a product that doesn’t require refrigeration but if you want to make your own, you could use shortening, like Crisco, lard, or unsalted butter.

You can get the homemade recipe at our Cheddar Bay Biscuits post!

Tips for making this Bisquick apple crisp with oats

  • Get all of your ingredients together ahead of time
  • If macadamia nuts aren’t to your taste, feel free to substitute walnuts or pecans
  • Spray your baking pan with a popular cooking spray like Pam
  • Set the oven timer for 30 minutes and increase if necessary. The apples will start to bubble around the edges when it is done.
  • The Cobbler topping should be golden.

Time Saver Tip:

If you’re pushed for time, don’t have fresh apples on hand, you can also use apple pie filling! I love to use my Freezer Apple Pie Filling when time is tight, and it’s so easy to use.

Recipe FAQs

Can I make my own biscuit mix?

You bet! We show you how in our copycat Red Lobster Biscuit post.

I don’t like apricots – can I leave them out?

Yep, just add some more apple slices to make up for the weight. Another 1/2 an apple should do fine.

Is apple crisp and apple cobbler the same?

Good question! While both are desserts that are baked with many of the same ingredients, a cobbler has a dense topping that uses a biscuit or pie crust type of dough.

What do you serve with Bisquick Apple Cobbler Skillet?

We love this delicious apple cobbler warm from the oven with a big ole scoop of vanilla ice cream. Freshly made whipped cream is also amazing.
