This is a recipe from Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade Cooking, which I've modified a bit. It's so easy that it can be prepared in just a few minutes, yet the result is wonderful. A perfect dessert for a cold winter evening.
- 2 (12 ounce) bags frozen mixed berries, thawed
- 21 ounces apple pie filling
- 1⁄3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 18 ounces refrigerated cookie dough
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix berries, apple pie filling, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Transfer mixture to an 8 x 8 x 2 baking dish.
- Crumble the cookie dough over the fruit mixture, covering it completely.
- Place baking dish on a cookie sheet and put both in oven.
- Bake, uncovered, until cookie crust is golden and crisp and juices bubble thickly, about 45 minutes.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream.
WEll, I search all over Toronto for the Pillsbury sugar cookie dough. Nowhere. We used to have it. Anyhow, I decided to make the Betty Crocker sugar cookie recipe and put it on top. I used a square 8 inch pyrex dish. It overflowed (should have put it on a cookie sheet. After 45 minutes it looked done, so I took it out. When oven was cool I cleaned it. I served it and it was good, especially with haagendaaz vanilla icecream. Good berry mix of frozen blueberries, raspberries and strawberries with the apple filling, BUT, parts of cookie crust closest to berries were not cooked. So next time I will do for one hour. I will try the Pillsbury dough to see the difference, but honestly the Betty Crocker one should def. been cooked more since it was just made and not refrigerated. Still good though. I may cook 20 minutes more in oven tomorrow. Linda
According to the Ooohs and Ahhs of our daughter and niece, we have a winner here! I had a little taste and it was very nummy! I'm hosting a little sleepover tonight, and am not ready for my nummy for a while. I used fresh strawberries, fresh raspberries, and a few blackberries that were in the freezer for future use. I omitted the cinnamon because the cookie dough I had on hand was Snickerdoodle, which is already heavy on the cinnamon. There are now two girls just going on and on about this cobbler. Need I say more? So easy and so quick! And the girls LOVED that there was apple in it, too. Thanks Greg! Another keeper!
