Apple Pie Cookies

Yep. You read that correctly. Last night I made cookies that tasted just like apple pie, thanks to a recipe I found from Food Pusher.

Fun tip: Always follow directions. In the original recipe, Food Pusher calls for you to use a circular cookie cutter on the dough. I didn’t have a circular cookie cutter, so I thought it’d be cute to use a snowman one for Christmas. It was not. Once you put the filling on top, they looked a bit like some inappropriate body parts. No one wants to be giving those out at a cookie exchange.

I also used pre-made pie crust instead of making my own. Who has the time for extra steps?!

Apple Pie Cookies

Recipe: Apple Pie Cookies

(Makes around 3 dozen)

What You Need:

circle cookie cutter

1 sheet refrigerated pie crust

3/4 cup flour

1 can apple filling

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup old-fashioned oatmeal

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

What You Do:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.

2. Roll out pie crust. Carefully cut circles, rolling excess dough out again to make more.

3. Mix together all ingredients but butter and apple in a mixer. Cut butter into chunks and add-in until well-blended. Set 1/2 cup of the mixture aside to top your cookies with.

4. Carefully cut the apple filling into smaller pieces. Add to the batter still in the mixer.

5. Place pie crust dough circles onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Top each with a spoonful of apple batter. Gently smooth batter evenly on cookies.

6. Bake for 15 minutes.
