    over 20 years ago, my “kids” and I ate apple cobbler at the drive in restaurant in the FL theme park. It was since taken off the menu and I haven’t been able to find it or a recipe anywhere. This cobbler from the Liberty Tree Tavern is not it. The one we had was baked in individual ramekins. It was the best thing ever. Does anyone know where I can find this recipe
