Apple Pie Cookies Ingredients

Apple Pie Cookies raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (21-ounce) can of apple pie filling
  • 1 package of refrigerated pie crust (2 rolls in a box), thawed per directions on the box
  • ½ cup of salted caramel sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon of water
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

PIE CRUST: This recipe starts with premade pie dough, although you could definitely make your own pie crust from scratch if you’d like. Check out our homemade pie crust recipe.

PIE FILLING: You could use any flavor of fruit pie filling in place of the apple filling for these mini pies.

How To Make This Apple Pie Cookies Recipe

STEP ONE: Place the apple pie filling onto a cutting board and cut the apples into smaller pieces. Set aside.

STEP TWO: Place a silicone baking sheet onto a cookie sheet. Roll out one sheet of pie crust onto the silicone sheet. A rolling pin can be used to lightly flatten out the dough if needed.

STEP THREE: Spread the salted caramel sauce from edge to edge on the pie crust dough. Top with the chopped apple pie filling and spread edge to edge. Set aside.

STEP FOUR: On a cutting board, roll out the second pie crust. A rolling pin can be used to lightly flatten out the dough if needed.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

I chose to do lattice tops for the top layer of pie crust. You can keep it simple and do a regular crust on top if you’d rather.

STEP FIVE: Using a pizza cutter and a ruler, slice the dough into ¼-inch strips (or eyeball it!).

STEP SIX: Using these strips, do a lattice crust on top of the apple pie filling crust. Or you can just lay some strips vertical and then horizontal if latticework is not your thing.

STEP SEVEN: Using a 2¾-inch round cookie cutter, cut out the cookies leaving a little space in between them. Remove the extra dough from around the cookies and just leave the cookies in place on the silicone baking sheet to bake.

PRO TIP:

You can place all the leftover dough and pie filling into a small, greased pie pan and make a mini pie!

STEP EIGHT: Brush cookies with egg wash using a pastry brush. In a small bowl, mix cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg together and sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the cookies.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your apple cookies at the lower end of the recommended baking time.

STEP NINE: Place the cookie sheet into the oven and bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

PRO TIP:

Drizzle a little bit of caramel on top before serving to complete this amazing goody.

How To Serve

    I like caramel with apple pie and I like homemade dough but have used store-bought when short on time. This recipe is one I will definitely try.
