Cinnamon, sugar and apples are about as autumnal as a dessert can get. So why not combine everyone’s favorite cinnamon-sugar cookie, snickerdoodles, with apple cobbler? That was the thought that inspired this easy, crowd-size dessert, and thanks to the Betty Crocker Test Kitchens, this mashup works like a charm. The cookie dough crust bakes up cobbler style with a slight chewy top, fluffy center and a perfectly caramely bottom where the spiced apple mixture melds with the crust. So, you end up with deluxe apple cobbler topped with a snickerdoodle cookie crust. The only thing this dessert for 12 really needs is a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! Serve this warm from the oven, so your ice cream gets a little bit melty, and don’t be surprised if someone tries to lick their plate clean. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Granny Smith apples were used in developing this recipe, but McIntosh, Braeburn, Honeycrisp or any other type of baking apple will do just fine. Baking apples are those that are firm enough to keep their shape in the heat of the oven, so your dessert doesn’t turn out mushy. Baking apples can be tart or sweet, so you can pick the one that best suits your tastes.
  • There’s no need to peel the apples used in this dessert, unless you prefer to do so.
  • When adding your topping, use a cookie scoop to make portioning cookie dough quick and consistent.
  • Cobblers are a classic American baked dessert made with fruit. Some are encased in pastry, pie-style, while others just get topped with biscuits or streusel. They’re cousins of other easy fruit desserts, like crisps, crumbles, betties, grunts, slumps, pandowdies and fools.
