Fresh-baked desserts have a hard time lasting even a day in my house. If I pull something warm out of the oven, it takes all I have to not dig in right away. I know, totally ridiculous. As an adult, I should really learn some willpower.

When I pulled this cobbler out of the oven, I knew I had something amazing in my hands. Delicious, warm, baked apples and cinnamon sugar-coated cookies? Yeah, I was going to have a real hard time not eating all of this before I could let it cool.

Luckily my husband talked me out of eating it all in one sitting, and I was able to photograph it so I could share with all of you. Now get into the kitchen, and make this beauty!

There is nothing better than fresh-baked cookies and warm apple cobbler. That's why I took the two and combined them to create the new mashup dessert of your dreams. Warm, spiced apples and cinnamon sugar cookies never tasted so good.

Yields 1 (9 inch) dish

Prep time: 15 minutes | Bake time: 50 minutes | Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 12 raw sugar cookies (use the refrigerated, prescored package)
  • 1/3 cup cinnamon sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. To a large bowl, add the apples, brown sugar, flour and apple pie spice. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the apple mixture to the prepared pie plate.
  4. Separate your 12 sugar cookies, and lightly flatten them. Don't worry about making them too thin; they will bake and spread as the cobbler cooks.
  5. Coat your pressed sugar cookies with the cinnamon sugar.
  6. Place the cookies on top of the apple mixture, and sprinkle with any remaining cinnamon sugar.
  7. Bake for about 50 minutes, until the top is golden and the apples are soft.
