This Apple Cinnamon Bun Cookie Cobbler is not only easy but highly addictive. So yummy you won’t want to share.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t make apple desserts that often because I eat them.
This Apple Cinnamon Bun Cookie Cobbler, which is really more a dump cake than cobbler, is case in point.
You know that I hate when bloggers say that they ate the whole pan (when really they only took a bite) but other than one scoop, I literally at the whole pan.
Now, not in one sitting, but yeah, the whole pan.
Often I ate it for breakfast…because fruit. 🙂
I had found a Caramel Apple Cookie Mix a couple years ago and made a cobbler out of that and that was amazing.
So when I came across a Cinnamon Bun Cookie Mix I knew what had to be done.
The picture on the box showed them frosted.
Silly me, didn’t think to check if frosting came with it I just assumed it did.
It does not.
Which is fine because I just made mine own and that is better anyway.
Because whenever you can add cream cheese frosting to a baked good, you should totally do it.
I’m calling it a cobbler because you do have to cook the apples.
Otherwise it’s really a dump cake…which just means it’s super easy to make.
Now you may be seeing this and thinking this is a box mix, why on Earth are you using Plugra European Style Butter for it?
Because it calls for a cup and anytime a recipe calls for a lot of butter means that the butter flavor it going to be coming through…which means I want Plugra.
Also, because this recipe has so few ingredients it really does make a difference.
What if I cannot find the cookie mix?
If you cannot find the cookie mix just buy a sugar cookie mix and add a tsp. of cinnamon and ½ cup of cinnamon chips and you should be fine.
But whatever you do…make…this…cobbler.
No, seriously, make this cobbler.
It’s a great day to order my cookbook.
Want more recipes? Try these:
- For the cobbler:
- 5 large apples (I chose Honeycrisp), peeled and diced
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 2 ¼ cups Cinnamon Bun Cookie Mix (or sugar cookie mix with 1 tsp. cinnamon and ½ cup cinnamon chips if can’t find)
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted (I used Plugra)
- For the Cream Cheese frosting:
- 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
- Milk to thin
- For the cobbler:In a large sauté pan over medium heat add apples, sugar, and lemon juice.
- Let it cook down so that the apples are tender.Spray 9-x-13-inch baking dish with baking spray or use butter. I baked mine in an 8-x-8 for visual effect (aka I like that pan for photos).
- Pour apple mixture into pan.
- Sprinkle cookie mix over the top of the apples.
- Pour melted butter over the cookie mix.
- Bake at 350F for 45 minutes or until top is golden brown.
- For the frosting:
- Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment mix the cream cheese until smooth.
- With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a half cup at a time until smooth and creamy.
- Beat in the vanilla extract.
- Thin with milk if needed.
- Top with cream cheese frosting.
- I chose to just do a crisscross pattern and not cover the whole dessert…but again that was for visual effect.
