As we head into November with Thanksgiving fast approaching, there’s no better time to feature a recipe from I am Grateful, co-published with Café Gratitude. Take a pause to remember and appreciate the wonderful things in your life, and celebrate being lovely with the delicious dessert below.

I am Lovely: Strawberry Apple Cobbler

Makes a pan 12 x 10 x 2 ½ inches

For the Crust:
4 ½ cups pecans (do not soak)
3 tablespoons well-packed, very finely chopped dates
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla
⅛ teaspoon salt

For the Filling:
8 cups sliced apples
5 cups sliced strawberries
¼ cup lemon
1 tablespoon vanilla
Pinch of salt

To Make the Crust:
In the bowl of your food processor fitted with the “S” blade, process 3 cups of the pecans with the cinnamon, vanilla, and salt for one minute. Continue to process while adding small amounts of the date. Then place in a bowl and add remaining 1 ½ cups pecans. Press the crust into your pan, setting aside 1 ½ cups of this crust mixture for the topping.

To Make the Filling:
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Evenly distribute the filling on top of the crust. Then crumble the remaining crust on the top. This dessert is lovely served with I Am Pleased: Vanilla Hazelnut Ice Cream or topped with I Am Smooth: Sweetened Crème Fraîche.

Note: You may substitute local ripe seasonal fruits for the strawberries and apples.
