Apple Buttermilk Skillet Cobbler.

After the best apple picking trip in the North Georgia mountains with my big guy Wyatt, we wanted to bring back our peck of apples and make something yummy for the family.

This recipe is one that we love from a cookbook that we're so into. The author, Brooke Bell passed the book, Cast Iron Baking along to me and I fell in love with this recipe. You know any book where I can cook with my cast iron skillet for each recipe is a win / win.

For as simple as this recipe is it's absolutely delicious and beautiful too. And trust me, it may seem like a lot of butter when you pour the batter in, but it all works out in the end. How's that for Southern cooking?
