Crispy, freshly fried apple fritters are sandwiched between two layers of turtle cookie dough for a unique and utterly delicious eating experience!
  • 2 pkg (24-count) refrigerated turtle cookie dough (I used the kind by Nestle), room temperature
  • 4-5 medium-sized apple fritters
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8" pan with foil, extending the edges of the foil over the sides of the pan. Mist the foil liberally with cooking spray.
  2. Open one package of the cookie dough and gently press the entire plane of cookie dough into the prepared pan in an even layer, pressing together any gaps. You can also tear and press pieces of dough together, almost like a puzzle, until the entire bottom of the pan is covered.
  3. Top the first layer of cookie dough with the apple fritters in a single layer, tearing fritters to fit in the corners and small nooks and crannies, if need be.
  4. Repeat with the remaining package of cookie dough, covering the apple fritters as best as you can. Bake for approx. 20-25 minutes or until the center appears mostly set (without being overly jiggly) as it will continue to cook up and firm up at room temperature. Do not over-bake. Allow the bars to cool completely before cutting into squares. Serve with caramel sauce or dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
