Sift together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut the butter into small pieces, then cut it into the dry ingredients. When the mixture looks coarse with some pea sized pieces of butter here and there, stir in the oats, then add the cream, and stir just until it combined.
Scatter the topping over the apples and bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until golden.
It was getting dark by the time the cobbler came out of the oven, so the final shot isn't as good as I would have liked, but trust me, it's delicious and much less of a hassle than dealing with pie crust!
We baked straight through to dinner time and Tara introduced me to her amazingly delicious curried lentils! It's a perfect cold weather meal and she said I can post her recipe here, so stay tuned :)
