Peanut Butter Cookie Apple Cobbler

I realized that I hadn’t post a fun cheat treat in a long time and we all need some of those in our lives, right?  I absolutely love peanut butter and apples together.  I eat it for snack quite often, and that is how the idea for this marriage came up. Two of my favorite treats, brought together to form something amazing.  And I think you will agree!  That’s if you like peanut butter and apples, of course. 🙂  Sweet warm apples with rich goey peanut butter cookies ontop!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  We will start with the peanut butter cookie dough.  In a medium mixing bowl, stir together your oats, flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.

In the bowl of a mixer, using the paddle attachment, cream the peanut butter and sugars together until well incorporated.  Add in the vanilla and egg and mix.

Add the flour and oat mixture to the peanut butter mixture and turn on mixer.  If the mixture seems to crumbly, add in a tablespoon or two of milk just until it comes together like cookie dough.  One time I made it I had to add milk and another time I made it, I didn’t need to so just eyeball it.   Set the cookie dough aside while we get the apples ready.

Core and peel 4 large sweet apples.  I like to use Fujis or Jonagolds, but any sweet apple will do.  I also like to use my little apple peeler corer thing so it slices them nice and evenly thin at the same time.  Then I cut them in half once from the top so they are all half slices.  Place all the cut and peeled apples into a large mixing bowl.  Add the flour, cinnamon, allspice, sugar, salt, and lemon juice to the bowl and toss with the apples until it’s as evenly coated as you can.  It doesn’t have to be perfect.  Dump the apples into a lightly greased 9×13 baking dish.

You can add the cookie dough on top however you would like as long as it’s evenly covered.  I actually used my little cookie scoop, rolled them into balls, and then flattened them out just a bit to lay on top.  I didn’t really leave space in between them like you would if you were baking cookies.  You want the dough to fluff up and come together to cover the whole top.

Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, just until the edges of the cookies around the edges are browning just a bit.  Take out of the oven and let cool slightly to let it set a bit, but it’s best when it’s still a warm.

We had it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top last time and it was fabulous!
