Sweet, tender baked apples with a crunchy Snickerdoodle cookie crumble topping – This Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler has just the right amount of sweet and tart, and is the perfect warm dessert for fall.
A few months ago, I shared a Sugar Cookie Berry Cobbler that was amazingly delicious. My entire family loved it. I knew I wanted to try that sugar cookie technique again for fall and apples were of course the perfect choice of fruit. Everybody loves a good Snickerdoodle, so I thought why not put all of those elements together?
HOW TO MAKE SNICKERDOODLE APPLE COBBLER
Fresh, tart apples (no pie filling here!) are thinly sliced and tossed with white and brown sugar, cinnamon and flour then spread in a baking dish. The apple cobbler base similar to the base for an apple pie, but no rolling a delicate crust is required! For the crumble topping, a stick of softened butter is combined with a package of sugar cookie dough (hello, EASY!) and a whole bunch more cinnamon.
*Sidenote – did you know that you can make Snickerdoodles like that? You can! They’re basically a sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon, so the next time you have a craving and don’t want to measure out all those ingredients, just use the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix! Make the dough, then roll into balls and into a mix of cinnamon and sugar. Voila!
Ok back to the apple cobbler recipe – Sprinkle a good amount of cinnamon sugar over the crumble topping and bake. That’s it! It’s so easy, doesn’t require a ton of ingredients and is something everybody will want seconds on! Top with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce for the ultimate indulgence!
