    brown sugar, packed

How to Make Apple Cranberry Cookie Cobbler

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Peel, core and thinly slice apples.
  3. Place apples in a 9 x 13" baking dish.
  4. Combine cranberry sauce, sugar, flour and 1 tsp. cinnamon in a med-sized mixing bowl.
  5. Mix well, to remove flour lumps.
  6. Spread mixture over the sliced apples.
  7. Slice cookie dough into 1/4" slices. I use a decorative-edged cutter, to give the cookie slices a "textured" look. They look pretty when they cook.
    Arrange slices evenly in a 'shingled' or layered pattern over apple mixture.
  8. Sprinkle cookies evenly with 2 tsp. sugar.
  9. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes, or until apples are tender, mixture is bubbling up thru the crust, and top is golden brown.

    The above recipe is for a 9" x 13" baking dish. Cut amounts in half, if using a 9x9" or 8x8" pan.
  10. OTHER POSSIBILITIES:

    2 large cans (28-oz each) sliced peaches, well-drained; 1 cup sliced frozen strawberries, thawed, with the juice drained off. Mix w/ 1/3 - 1/2 c. brown sugar, 6 T. flour, and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (a good pinch!). Cover with sliced sugar cookie dough. Bake 9x9" pan, 400°, 30 - 35 minutes.

    OR:

    2 large cans blackberries, drained, and 1 reg. can pears, sliced, drained. Might need to use slightly more brown sugar (1/2 c. - 2/3 c.) if berries are tart. Use same amounts of flour and cinnamon as for peach cobbler, above. Bake in 9x9" baker, 400°, 30 - 35 minutes.

    3 cups rhubarb, fresh or frozen, and 1 cup sliced, frozen strawberries, thawed, with the juice. Use 2/3 cup brown sugar, 6T. of flour and 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon. Bake in 9x9" baker, 375°, 35 - 45 minutes, or until rhubarb is tender.

    You could probably do this with 2 large cans of fruit cocktail, drained WELL, and follow instructions above for peach cobbler.

    You could use other types of cookie dough, too .... chocolate chip, on top of pure strawberry cobbler, perhaps? Homemade gingersnap cookie dough, on top of Blackberry-Pear Cobbler? Use your imagination ... and vanilla ice cream, lots of vanilla ice cream, when you serve it HOT!!
