Ingredients

For the Apples

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced thin (or your favorite apples)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the cobbler

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups flour

For the topping

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

Make apples:

  • Melt 1/4 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:

  • Cream 3/4 cup butter and 3/4 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 9x13” baking dish. Spoon tablespoons of the cookie dough mixture evenly over the top in a single layer.
  • Mix remaining 1/3 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.
