Warm up on a cold and rainy day with a big serving of this satisfyingly delicious Snickerdoodle Apple Crumble.
Yeah…and this is much needed around here! You see, my family had been taking turns with being sick. First it was my son. Poor kiddo was sick right before his winter break and had to endure finals while feeling miserable. Then my husband got the crud about a week later. And me, well, it finally hit me after all of the holiday celebrations and I still have the darn lingering cough!
For almost four weeks our household has been sluggish and under-the-weather. What about you guys? Anyone else sick out there? It’s also been raining here off and on, at times with hard rain and strong wind — not that I really like storms, but we so need the rain in Northern California! And today is no exception; forecast is for heavy rain the entire day.
So, for me, there’s nothing better than having a warm and wonderful treat to enjoy and to take the chill off your cold and tired bones!
That’s where this Snickerdoodle Apple Crumble comes into play. This recipe is pretty much an apple crumble, however I decided to replace my standard crumble topping with a snickerdoodle topping that is really out-of-this-world good!
Instead of the flour I normally use for my crumble topping, I added the contents of a boxed snickerdoodle cookie. And it worked. It brought that unique cinnamon/sugar flavor to a whole new level when combined with the tart apples.
Warm. Satisfying. Easy. Addicting!
Snickerdoodle Apple Crumble
By: Sheila | Sweet Baked Life
1 box (17.5 oz.) Krusteaz Snickerdoodle Cookie mix plus the cinnamon/sugar topping included
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
4 Granny Smith apples, pealed, cored and rough chopped
Turn your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl add the cookie mix and cinnamon/sugar topping, oats and brown sugar and mix to combine. Pour the melted butter on top of the mixture and using a fork, lightly fluff until blended (until soft clumps form, do not over mix).
Put the chopped apples in the bottom of a 11×17-inch baking dish. Then evenly sprinkle the cookie mixture on top. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until hot and the apples are bubbling.
Cool slightly then scoop onto plate or bowl. Can be served warm or cold.
So if you’re in need of a little sweet warmth to make you feel better, this Snickerdoodle Apple Crumble is the way to go!
Happy rainy day!
