It’s Fall y’all. The holidays are coming along with chillier weather. That can only mean one thing. It’s baking season! I know a lot of people who love baked goods, but hate to bake. Well, this recipe is for you guys.
This past weekend, I hosted a Pampered Chef cooking party. This recipe comes from the rep that did the demonstration at casa FSL. I tweaked it a little bit. Here’s my version. It tastes fan-frikkin-tastic and is super easy to make. It tastes like Autumn.
4 granny smith apples (or whatever apples you have on hand – I used 5 gala apples)
1 (16oz) can of whole berry cranberry sauce
2/3 cup of brown sugar
6 tablespoons of flour
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/2 package of frozen sugar cookie dough
Pre heat the oven to 400 F.
Core and slice apples into bite sized pieces (I left the skin on because I’m a slacker)
In a large bowl, combine apples, cranberry sauce, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon.
It should look like this
Put it all into your bake-ware evenly spread out (I used Pampered Chef’s “deep covered baker”). It’s stoneware, so if you use a glass dish, you’ll just have to keep an eye on it while it bakes.
Next, slice up 1/2 of the frozen roll of sugar cookie dough. Keep the other half to
eat raw while you wait bake with later.
Evenly place the dough slices on top of the apple mixture.
Bake uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes (or cookie looks golden brown).
Your house will smell amazing at this point.
Imagine the scent of apple pie and sugar cookies. Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about!!
Scoop and serve! It probably rocks with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, but this thing barely made it out of the oven before we had spoons in it.
It’s not entirely from scratch, but when you get home from work and you want comfort-food style dessert, this baby hits the spot!
What’s your favorite comfort dessert? I need some more easy recipes like this one, so share them if you’ve got them!
