Apple cobbler is one of my favorite desserts, especially when it’s time for fall baking. This year, I decided to not only give Apple Cobbler a snickerdoodle twist, I also made what is quite possible one of my easiest recipes yet!

With just 4 ingredients and less than an hour, you can have this Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler ready to go!

  • sugar cookie dough
  • apple pie filling
  • cinnamon
  • sugar

Step by step

This cobbler starts with a sugar cookie base made by pressing the premade dough into the bottom of the dish. The base gets a healthy dose of cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. Then, that cookie base is topped with rich, cinnamon-y apple pie filling (store bought or homemade).  

Finally, another layer of sugar cookie bits and cinnamon sugar top the pie filling and the whole thing is baked until hot and bubbly.  Snickerdoodle cookies + apple pie = amazing easy Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler!  (Apple pie math – it’s a thing!)

Serving suggestions

This cobbler is the best of both worlds … apple pie and cookies!  I recommend serving it warm topped it with vanilla ice cream for an a la mode treat! You could also try whipped cream, you really can’t go wrong!


Can I use homemade apple pie filling?

You can make this with your own homemade apple pie filling if desired.

How do I store leftovers?

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave.

Because an apple a day keeps the doctor away AND makes awesome desserts and snacks, here are a few more yummy apple recipes:

  25. I’m looking forward to making these this week however my grocery store didn’t have any refrigerated sugar cookie dough so I was planning to make my own dough and continue on with the recipe. Do you think this will be a problem?

    1. Hi Sarah! I bet your homemade dough would work perfectly and my only recommendation would be to chill the dough prior to baking! I’d love to hear if it works out!

  26. Mine turned out runny. The tops were really crispy, so I pulled them out, but the cookie didn’t seem to really cook. Some of it did if it was on the edge. It was still good, and we needed seconds, but I don’t know what to do to fix it. Ideas?

    1. Hi Kari – Bummer!! Maybe the oven temperature was a little off? Or different types of baking dishes (glass, dark, stoneware) could cause something to bake slower or faster. I hope you try these again – they are one of our very favorite easy desserts 🙂

  27. Making this again…this time I’m trying peach! This is the 3rd time I have made this this Summer! The last time (and this time) I doubled it and put it in a 13×9 pan. It takes about 50 minutes to an hour. I will be serving it with vanilla ice cream to my co workers this evening, I’m sure it will be a hit….again!

  29. These look absolutely delicious. Do you all think they would freeze well before baking? I live to do freezer meals with 2 of my friends and they were wanting desserts next go around. Thus, would be a quick and easy one to do and freeze.

    1. Hi Theresa – ours didn’t last long enough to freeze but if you wrapped them individually in freezer paper, they might be okay. If you try it, please let me know how it turns out!

  30. I made this last night and it was a great success! I did use my own sugar cookie dough and apple pie filling. It was a bit soft, but I like soft baked cookies anyway. Thanks for the recipe. Who doesn’t love apple pie and snickerdoodles?

    1. Hi Beth,

      I know a few folks on Pinterest mentioned they used homemade apple pie filling, but didn’t provide any details. I’ll keep my eyes out and update here if I see anything 🙂

  31. These are in the oven now! Hope I didn’t goof up. Used the same amounts but put it in a 9×13 so we will see. I also drizzled some caramel sauce between the cookie crust and apple filling, crossing my fingers! Thanks for the recipe.

  32. Your blog is wonderful! Great job. Someone posted one of your recipes on Facebook and didn’t give you credit or copy your URL with the recipe. Thankfully your website address (shakentogetherlife.com) was in the photo so I could find this original posting and thank you. Remember to always put your URL in each photo and then you will get the credit you deserve!! Thanks so much for your great recipes.

    1. Thanks so much for hunting me down – I really appreciate the time you took to let me know, as well. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  33. Made these for tonight but decided to use cherry pie filling instead. I snuck a taste this afternoon and WOW, so amazing and so easy! Thanks, Keri. 🙂

  34. I made these for the first time , I was amazed at how very simple and delicious they were ! I doubled the recipe and made in a 13×9 pan also drizzled with some powder sugar glaze. They ate it up !! Thank you for the recipe ! 🙂

  35. These look amazing! Such a creative take on a cookie bar, too. I’m definitely trying them!
