With an apple farm just down the road, I'm always looking for creative ways to use up those bushels. We love this cozy cake with caramel drizzle and a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. —Rachel Garcia, Colorado Springs, Colorado

"I tried this recipe & was disappointed with the results. I followed the recipe as printed and used the appropriate pan size. However, the filling spilled over into the bottom of my oven. The half cup of butter was insufficient to cover the cookie mixture. It was very dry. So I melted additional butter to drizzle over the cookie mix; then cooked the cake for an additional 10 minutes. I had planned to take this dessert to my church for coffee refreshments. I left it in the oven with the heat turned off in hopes of the top becoming crisp like the cookies. I have made a lot of snickerdoodle cookies over the years, but never had the failure this batch caused me."

"While I wouldn't call this a cake, I will call it delicious! I didn't peel the apples as I never peel apples for a dessert. It may not look as pretty, but none of the nutrients are lost."
