Ok, let’s just pretend it’s Fall already! Deal? It’s definitely starting to feel like Fall since it is cooler at night & the days are getting shorter. With it being darker in the mornings, my kids are actually starting to sleep in a little longer, which NEVER happens. So hooray for Fall!
Apples make this time of year even better & this recipe could not get any easier. If you are an apple pie lover, but hate to make pie crust or have issues when you make it, then this is the recipe for you. I am neither of those people by the way. I can make a fabulous pie crust & I enjoy making it, but I understand there are those who struggle with pie crust or hate making it altogether. So this dessert only needs 4 ingredients & is super simple to make! Enjoy!
Recipe from Shaken Together & re-written using my own words.
Snickerdoodle Apple Pie Dessert
- 1 (16.5oz) tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 1 (20oz) can apple pie filling
- 3 Tbsp sugar
- 3 tsp cinnamon
- Line a 8x8" or 9x9" square baking dish with parchment paper. (I let mine hang out on two ends of the dish so I could pull the whole pie out for easy cutting.)
- Combine sugar & cinnamon in a bowl. Sprinkle ⅓ of the mixture onto the piece of parchment that is lining your square dish.
- Slice the cookie dough into 18 round pieces. Place 9 of the cookie dough rounds onto the bottom of the pan & press together making one flat layer (on top of the cinnamon-sugar mixture you just sprinkled.)
- Spread apple pie filling over the cookie layer. Sprinkle with half of the remaining cinnamon sugar.
- Place the other 9 pieces of cookie dough rounds onto the top, this time leaving the space between the cookies as is. (The apple pie filling will be peeking through.) Sprinkle the top with the remaining cinnamon sugar.
- Bake at 350*F for 35-45 minutes or until the cookie crust on top is not doughy (the layer on top might look done, but the cookie dough touching the apples might be raw, so check thoroughly before pulling from the oven.) Allow to cool completely before removing from pan & slicing to serve. Great with a little vanilla bean ice cream on the side!

instead of cutting the sugar cookie dough into circles could i use it as a pie crust on the bottom and over the top? would it still turn out right and would the cooking time change?
It would basically be the same. Cutting the dough into circles eliminates the need for rolling. The cookie dough just takes a long time to cook over the wet apple pie filling. You could try and spread it into a 13×9-inch dish, but I’m betting it would still take 30 to 40 minutes to bake and it wouldn’t have as much filling in each bite. Just lift up the top cookie dough layer and check the part where it touches the apple pie filling to see if it’s raw or not and continue baking as necessary.
Cookies + apples + cinnamon = the perfect combination for me!!
I could eat the whole thing by myself 🙂
This looks so yummy! Maybe my contribution to Thanksgiving this year!
This sounds so simple to make, but it looks so yummy. I love it!!
