1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 1/2 cups finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz) SAVE $
2 large apples
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 350° F. Line 8-inch square (2-quart) baking dish with cooking parchment paper, leaving paper overhanging on two sides.

2:  Using pastry blender (or your hands), mix 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury sugar cookie dough with 1 1/2 cups finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz) until evenly incorporated. Press about two-thirds of mixture evenly in baking dish.  Bake 12 minutes then remove from oven.

3:  Meanwhile, peel and thinly slice 2 large apples. Toss apples with 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar in medium bowl. Spread apple mixture evenly over crust in baking dish.

4:  Add 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1 tablespoon sugar to remaining cookie dough mixture and combine until evenly incorporated.  Sprinkle crumbled chunks of cookie dough mixture on top of the apple layer.

Bake about 40 minutes or until top is light golden brown.  Cool 2 hours then cut into bars or squares.

Darlene’s Tips: You could add some chopped nuts to the top layer of cookie dough.  You could also add some spices to the apple mix like cinnamon or apple pie spice.  You can also serve warm with a side of ice cream.
