It was good, but I guess I'm not as big of a fan of snickerdoodles as I thought I was. Maybe it was to different from the classic cobbler to win me over completely. I found myself missing the oats!
For not LOVING snickerdoodles, I thought this was a pretty labor intensive dessert. You have to prepare the dough, let it sit, then prepare the apples and then wait for it to bake. It's nearly an hour, of prep time, with chilling the dough, and then 45 min in the oven. It seemed like a long time for what should be a simple dessert. I think I could have made an apple pie in the same amount of time.
While we all enjoyed the dessert, I think I'll stick with the super speedy microwave version of the apple crisp my mom always made. Apple-y goodness in about 15 min. However, if you've got patience and an affinity for snickerdoodles, give this cobbler a try!
