Are you team apple or team pumpkin when it comes to fall desserts? I would have to give the (slight) advantage to apples this time of year. I just love how there are literally a million ways to cook/bake/eat an apple and they are so delicious this time of year.

A while back, I was rummaging through my grandma’s box of recipes, as I usually do when I need a little inspiration, and this recipe for caramel apple cookie cobbler instantly caught my eye. Actually, the original recipe had no mention of caramel anywhere, but me being a caramel apple fan, just HAD to add the caramel to this recipe!

Caramel apple cookie cobbler is just that: delicious, thinly sliced apples sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, then combined with chewy and gooey caramel bits and baked with a sweet oatmeal cookie topping that is out of this world crunchy! To take this dessert to the next level, a nice big scoop of vanilla ice cream is added to the top of the warm cobbler, then it’s instant food coma!

This recipe would be great as a holiday dessert, or just a relaxing weekend dessert!

How to make this cobbler

The apples: You can really use any kind of apple you want. I like to use Honeycrisp apples because they are my favorite, but Granny Smith or Braeburn apples would be great too!

Apple peeler: I highly recommend you invest in a good apple peeler. I promise it will pay for itself after the first time you use it. Plus, you’ll want to make this dessert multiple times, so you’ll need it. I bought this apple peeler last year and I love it!

Cutting the apples: You can cut the apples into slices or squares. It’s all about your preference.

Caramels: The caramels make this ultra-sweet and gooey. If you prefer, you can leave the caramels out. I like to use the Kraft Caramel Bits.
