Snickerdoodle Cookies have never been my thing. But add them to a Apple Cobbler, now you're talking! This recipe is a taste sensation! I thank every time I make it!

You have the apples that are covered in butter, sugar and cinnamon. I have used Granny Smith Apples, which the recipe calls for or use your favorite apples. I have also used Honey Crisp Apples in this recipe and the flavor is slightly different but still very good!

Simple Ingredients for a tasty dessert!

The very first time I made this recipe, Kirk, my husband, raved about it. I had made it for him to take to a meeting he was going to. He called me at work and said that he was bringing a piece over for me to try. He kept saying how incredible it was. And that everyone loved it! That's always music to my ears.

Snickerdoodle Cookie dough over the apples

So, he brought me over a piece to have me try. I loved the flavor combination of the apples and cookie dough. Oh my gosh, this is the perfect dessert to serve this summer at you BBQ's!

If you try it, let me know how you like!

Make Apples
Melt ¼ cup of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the sliced apples, brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Toss to coat. Cook for 5-8 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the apples just become translucent. Set aside to cool while you make the topping.
Make Snickerdoodle Topping
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cream ¾ cup butter and ¾ cup granulated sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat in egg and extract. Mix in baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Slowly mix in flour.
Pour apples into a 9×13” baking dish. Spoon tablespoons of the cookie dough mixture evenly over the top in a single layer.
Mix remaining ⅓ cup granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over cookie dough.
Bake for about 24-26 minutes until the cookie dough starts to brown. Cool slightly before serving. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Store in refrigerator loosely covered for up to 3 days.
