I was trying come up with an idea to use all of this cookie dough that's been on sale, and I decided to make a Cookie Apple Cobbler. I found this recipe, which is great, because it uses the apples that are on sale this week at Publix, too (Braeburns $.99 lb) Little did I know, the sugar cookie dough is not part of the Nestle dough that was on sale. But, I wanted to try this, so I splurged. But you could probably use the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie dough in the pouch that was on sale. Its up to you. This was really good. It would have been great with ice cream or Cool Whip, but my Cool Whip was still frozen!
Cookie Apple Cobbler Recipe:
Cookie Apple Cobbler Ingredients:
6 cup sliced peeled apples
1 cup packed brown sugar (or less)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (divided)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookies
2 tablespoons granulated sugar (or less)
How To Make Cookie Apple Cobbler:
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In the large bowl, mix apples, brown sugar, flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and lemon juice; toss to coat apples well. Spoon into the ungreased deep-dish baking dish.
Spoon cookie dough, by teaspoons, evenly over apples. In the small bowl, mix granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over cookie dough.
Bake 35-45 minutes or until top is golden brown and apples are tender.
**I probably put a little more than 1 cup brown sugar, because I had a little left in the bag, so I dumped it in. It was probably too much! It was delicious, but a little on the sweet side. It would have been great with the vanilla ice cream to tone it down. Let it set for a few minutes on the stove to set up after removing it from the oven. Let the juices thicken a bit.
My family enjoyed this. My Mom brought pizza over, so I contributed with the dessert. I have just enough to take for a snack tomorrow at work!
