We started with fresh apples to build our Make-Ahead Apple Cobbler, but the cell walls broke down in the freezer, causing juices to leak. Precooking helped, but resulted in apple mush. The solution: dried apples, to soak up the excess juice. The freezer also dulled the cobbler’s flavor, but we resurrected it with an extra dose of cinnamon and brown sugar.
