Apple & Cider Cobbler
Cheddar cheese and apple pie is a classic combination. This recipe takes it to new heights by adding Canadian cheddar cheese into the biscuit topping of the cobbler. It’s a great cold weather dessert, using locally stored apples with Canadian apple cider which is now available most of the year. Serve with a dollop of cream or vanilla ice cream. You can even drizzle it with a bit of fresh maple syrup.
