I love making different cookies and quick breads but I seem to get in a bit of a rut when it comes to desserts. I tend to make apple crisp, Coca Cola Cake, peach cobbler and a few other favorites over and over again. Last night we had friends over for dinner and I wanted to try something new. Maybe an apple cobbler?
Since we are having the most glorious fall that I can remember in Calgary, I wanted to make something with traditional Fall flavors but I wasn’t sure about going the pumpkin route. I’ve found that people either love or hate pumpkin with no in between.
Off to Pinterest I galloped. I found a delicious looking recipe for Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler from Crazy for Crust. I loved the idea of apples covered in a sugar cookie crust. Yum. Unfortunately, my desire for an easy recipe didn’t love her steps. So, as I often do, I decided to try it my way. It worked out beautifully and our guests raved. This is going to be in my new rotation for sure. Delicious!
Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Toss apples, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl from the Apple Filling portion of the recipe. Pour into a 9X13 glass baking dish. Cover with pats of butter.
- In a stand-up mixer, cream butter and sugar (from the Topping section of the recipe). Add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix well. Add baking soda, cream of tartar and salt and slowly add the flour. Mix until combined.
- Drop tablespoonfuls of the sugar cookie dough on top of the apple mixture in the 9X13 pan covering it evenly.
- In a small bowl, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the sugar cookie top.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Yum!
