How to make Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler

Holiday season is cobbler season, so we’re going to keep them coming! This one is every bit as delicious as apple pie, but WAY easier to make!

Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler Recipe

Yield: 12 servings


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 6 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, diced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

For the topping

  • 1 (17.5 oz) bag of sugar cookie mix
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, sliced into 12 pats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 pellet grill to 350°F, set up for indirect grilling.

To make the apple filling, melt the butter in a Lodge Logic 12” cast iron skillet over medium heat (on a stove top or side burner). Add the apples and remaining filling ingredients and cook until the apples begin to soften and a syrup that coats the apples is developed (5-10 minutes). Remove from the heat.

Pour the sugar cookie mix over the filling in the skillet. Sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg over the sugar cookie. Spread the pats of butter on top. Sprinkle the brown sugar over everything evenly.

Bake at 350°F until the top is browned and cobbler is bubbling, about 1 hour.

Serve with whipped cream.

A nice tart apple, like a Granny Smith, is the perfect compliment to the sweet, syrupy sauce the apples will be basting in.

The cookie mix goes atop the apple filling. Followed by snickerdoodle spices, pats of butter and brown sugar.

Onto the cooker until browned up nicely on top!
