Cookie Apple Cobbler


Summer is in full swing now and nothing is more all American than apple pie or ...maybe apple cobbler.  My favorite apple recipe is the Apple Dumpling recipe made with Mountain Dew.  Maybe anything would taste good cooked in Mountain Dew - lol.  This recipe comes close to being as good but is a lot easier.  It only takes a few key ingredients and the other ingredients are usually in the pantry.  It is very sweet so the brown sugar amount could probably be lowered to 1/2 cup.  So if you don't have a lot of time and you're looking for a great all American apple pie type dessert, this is it.  Don't forget the vanilla ice cream.  I like the cobbler to be a little warm and then add the ice cream so it melts just a little.  Some things are just better with ice cream.

Cookie Apple Cobbler

6 cups sliced peeled apples
1 cup packed brown sugar  (3/4 cup if desired less sweet)
2 T all purpose flour
1  t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground allspice
2 T lemon juice
1 roll refrigerated sugar cookies
2 T granulated sugar

1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix apples, brown sugar, flour, 1 t of cinnamon, allspice and lemon juice; toss to coat apples well.  Spoon into ungreased 9 1/2-inch glass deep dish pie plate or rectangular pan.
2.  Crumble cookie dough evenly over apples.  Sprinkle the granulated sugar evenly over the cookie dough and then sprinkle with cinnamon.
3.  Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and apples are tender.
