This Easy Snickerdoodle Fruit Crumble makes good use of your not so snackable fruit and with pre-made cookie dough as the crumble, dessert will be ready in no time at all!!

Listen, I’m a busy chick but I like to cook and experiment as well. Its a fine balance between planning and prepping for a successful work week and letting my food freak fly lol. A lot of times I have food leftover or extra ingredients…basically stuff I have to use up ASAP because waste is not an option. This fruit crumble was one of those things I came up with.

Snickerdoodle cookies are not only my 2nd mini me’s favorite cookie but also a big seller for me. (I cater on the side as well 😉 ). So needless to say my fridge is always stocked with cookie dough. At the time I wrote this, I had an abundance of fruit in my fridge that needed to be used up. Mostly cherries, blueberries and strawberries. My immediate thought was of pie but making pie dough was not gonna happen so I figured why not use snickerdoodle cookie dough as a crumble. Anddd thats what I did 🙂

To make this Easy Snickerdoodle Fruit Crumble, you’ll need:

  • Fruit. Fresh or frozen
  • Sugar. How much depends on how sweet the fruit is. Taste as you mix.
  • Lemon juice. Freshly squeezed only.
  • Snickerdoodle cookie dough. To make a quick snickerdoodle, roll store bought sugar cookies in cinnamon sugar.
  • Kosher Salt. Always use a pinch of salt in your desserts
  • Vanilla extract and spices. Both are optional but add a depth of flavor to the dessert. If using berries, I highly recommend cinnamon.
  • Ice Cream or whipped cream.. because duh;-)

Easy peasy right?!! If you love fruit recipes check out these Blueberry Pancakes.

    Great idea! And any cookie dough would work. One thing, the cornstarch. Is it 2 teaspoons or 2 Tablespoons. (I have never seen tsp with a capital T) :)

      Hi Richard!! I’m glad you like the recipe, yes any cookie dough works. I’ve tried this with chocolate chip cookie dough and it was sooo good. And yea that’s tsp, I’m sorry for the confusion ☺️

    the cornstarch in the recipe, it says Tsp. Is that tablespoon or teaspoon? I also have never seen teaspoon referred to with a capital “T”. Please help. Recipe sounds great
