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

    This would be great at the next “cookie swap”. There definitely would not be a duplicate on the table.
    Looks fantastic, thanks for share!

  2. RZ says

    5 stars
    I’m confused about the nutmeg. What do I do with it? Do I mix it with the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle them before baking?
    I’m also making my own crust and filling, is there anything I should look out for? Ex. Make non flaky crust or how it may taste different from the cookies with box made components

    • Layne Kangas says

      Yes, the nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugar are mixed together and sprinkled. I haven’t tried it with everything from scratch. I would suggest using a sturdy crust for sure. Enjoy 🙂

  3. Tiffany says

    I haven’t made these but I’m definitely going to. But I’m thinking that cutting them in a semi-diamond shape, similar to baklava, could be great because then you use up all of it as cookies.

  4. Kathy says

    A caramel drizzle and sprinkle of nuts (toasted pecans) work. I make my apple pies with a caramel topping with toasted pecans. I love tart apples. Granny Smith green apples are still the best go to, and I also use Honey Crisp. I use cream cheese in my pie crust. Always a double crust (latice on the top). Next time for the cookies, I will try putting cream cheese in the foundation. This recipe is a brilliant idea when you don’t want to make a entire pie and just really want a taste of heaven, which you can get in this cookie.

  5. Deanna A says

    My favourite memory of apple pie is eating it with my grandma! She was the best cook and she always made sure to serve vanilla ice cream with warm apple pie!

    I made these and they were delicious!

  6. Angela says

    5 stars
    These cookies are so easy to make and delicious! One thing I like to do is serve cheese on the side with my apple pie, preferably cheddar!😊

  7. Belinda Snyder says

    Will have to try!
    I have used both store bought crust and homemade- have to say most store bought is just as good!

  8. Trudy Woods says

    I always bake from scratch. My Dad would always eat apple pie with a piece of cheese. I continue to serve my apple pies this way and think of him ❤️

  9. Elizabeth L. says

    Apple pie is always a family favorite for the holidays. It fills the house with that wonderful warm yummy feeling 🙂

  10. Lynn says

    5 stars
    My favorite memory involving apple pie is when my first grandson and I would always eat it together. He loved apple pie, just like me, plain no ice cream or whipped topping. I do like nutmeg in mine when I’m making one. He passed away when he was 17, five years ago, and I think of him every-time I have apple pie💕 I’m sure he would love these cookies! Thank you for your recipes!!

  11. Debra says

    5 stars
    These cookies look amazing, I will have to try them and surprise my husband and son in law. They both absolutely love apple pie. Thanks!

  12. Heather L Glynn Brancs says

    My favorite apple for apple pie is Jona Gold. They are just sweet enough amd hold up beautifully to being baked. We usually add a couple Granny Smith to our pies too, just to add a little tartness.

  13. Shelly Merchant says

    5 stars
    Favorite apple pie memory is my mother making them home made and with the extra pie crust she would make this cinnamon sugar thing and omg it was good.

  14. Holly McAllister says

    I make homemade apple pie filling and serve the pie with ice cream. And I like cheddar cheese with my pie.

  15. Sherry Ann Oyster says

    5 stars
    This recipe would be good any time and any place. You could use different cookie cutters for each holiday.

    I can’t wait to make them. YUMMY!

  16. Kathy says

    I can’t wait to try and make all of them. They look amazing and fun. It’s always nice to see new ways to be different. Thank you 💕

  17. Kira Campion says

    These look so good! My favorite memory of apple pie is that my grandpa was always the one to make them! He made his own crust (with a splash or orange juice in it) and his own filling. My brother has taken over the tradition now.

  18. Lauri Lammers says

    5 stars
    These cookies look delish! I always made Apple Pies for my Dad with Granny Smith Apples and now that he’s passed away, I think about him every time I see Apple recipes and smile.

  19. Jill Thielbar says

    5 stars
    I prefer to use a homemade crust with my apple pie. And when it comes to the topping? Ice cream is my preference.

  20. Lynn says

    5 stars
    We have to be gluten-free so I always make my own crust. I think vanilla ice cream is best on it. I prefer tart apples for everything, so cortlands in season, granny smith the rest of the year. I never use apple pie filling. These cookies would be too much work with fresh apples.

  21. Stacey Kulevich says

    I remember going to my neighbors and picking apples from their apple trees. Then I will go to the kitchen and help my mom and grandma make homemade apple pies with homemade crust. The smell of the cinnamon and the apples baking is a great memory. I also remember my grandmother making homemade cinnamon rolls with the last of the pie dough.

  22. Regina Delapaz Escobar Melchor says

    I love eating my apple pie with vanilla ice cream or milk. Apple pie is one of my family’s favorites and i will be trying this recipe thanks

  23. PAT says

    I HAVE TWO APPLES THAT ARE MY FAVORITES FOR MAKING MY PIES FROM SCRATCH.
    THE FIRST IS THE SPY, THE SECOND IS GRANNY SMITH. I MAKE MY PIE CRUST, FROM SCRATCH, AND WITH BUTTER AND SHORTENING. I DO USE NUTMEG IN MY PIES, AS WELL AS BROWN SUGAR, OR WHITE SUGAR, THAT I BRING TO CARAMEL STAGE. I MAKE MY DOUGH FOR THE CRUST, THEN DIVIDE IT INTO TWO DISC, WRAP IN PLASTIC WRAP THEN PUT IN THE FRIDGE TO REST, AND TO DEVELOP FLAVORING. THEN I START THE BAKE AT 400 DEGREES F. FOR TEN MINUTES, LOWER HEAT TO 350 DEGREES F. AND FINISH THE BAKE AT 35O DEGREES FOR FORTY TO FIFTY MORE MINUTES.

  27. Jeanie says

    My favorite topping for apple pie is homemade vanilla ice cream. On Sundays, our family would gather at my grandma’s house for a meal and dessert. It was always a special treat when grandpa got out the ice cream freezer to make ice cream. The kids, including me, thought it was great fun to take turns turning the crank handle, because we knew that very soon we would have delicious ice cream. My grandparents, aunts and uncles are no longer with us, but these sweet memories are. ❤

  28. Amy Mangano says

    apple pie is near and dear to my heart as my grandmother made it all the time from scratch. she lives to be 98 and gave me her special pie plate!!

  35. Sandra Rodriguez says

    These are adorable. I have made apple pie cookies before out of sugar cookie dough. Will definitely try this recipe.

  36. Deb says

    I haven’t made these yet, but they look really good. I have usually avoided using an apple pie filling simply because I was brought up on using fresh apples. But using the canned apples, boughten pie crust, and your spice combination on the crust will make a very tasty dessert that is fairly quick to make.

    Best memory is my mom making apple pie as an any day morning treat. The house would just smell of that baking apple. She would sometimes make this on a cold winter morning just to bring a little summer into the winter!

  38. Janice Sage says

    5 stars
    My Grandma Sages pie. Her crust was very flaky. She never shared her recipe with any of the family members. I can tell you she used lard and white vinegar in her recipe.

  39. Amber Clark says

    5 stars
    the best apple to use in my opinion is a Honey Crisp apple. When cooked they retain some of the crisp bite and they are tart so it goes well with the sugar and cinnamon filling

  40. Brandie says

    My favorite apple pie memory was the first time I made apple pie. It was for our friends thanksgiving get together. I made everything from scratch and even did cutouts of leaves to top the pie. Cute detail and everyone loved it.

  41. Nancy says

    These look delicious! Will have to make them soon. When I eat Apple pie, I love to top it with cinnamon ice cream! I’m sure if I were to cut/dice/crumble these cookies, they could easily be used as a topping on the cinnamon ice cream instead. Yum!

  42. Heidi Clark says

    5 stars
    Hi everybody! Okay, the cookies look so yummy no glaze is needed!
    Apples: Always a mix of McIntosh and Winesaps in my pies!
    Crust: Always homemade!
    Caramel? Ummmm. For sure!
    And always always with ice cream!
    😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋

  43. Gloria says

    I make my pie crust from scratch, I fell that my family appreciate and enjoy my apple pie a lot better and know the Love that went into baking it

  44. Cheri Baker says

    I might try these for holidays. I don’t make pies, but my mom always made delicious pies. She preferred tart apples such as Rome. She always made her pie crust. I have the recipe, but can’t find it. I’m still looking for it. Wish me luck! Lol

  45. Cheri says

    Tart apples are best as it balances the sweetness of the other ingredients. I collect recipes and cookbooks and this looks really good.

  46. Jacqueline Pena says

    My favorite memory of apple was helping my grandmother make the dough from scratch and whatever dough and apples that was left she let me makes apple turnovers

  47. Deborah says

    These sound yummy! My best memory is my Granny making what she called a Dutch Apple Pie. It had a crumble topping instead of a crust top. And of course you should use Granny Smith apples in my Granny’s pie!

    I do not put Carmel in my apple pie.
    I do not serve cheese with my apple pie.
    I love apple pie with French vanilla bean ice cream!
    I make homemade filling.
    I’m not sure what is my favorite pie crust, as long as it’s flaky and buttery!
    I absolutely use nutmeg in my filling!
    I use sweet apples in my pies.
    I would put a glaze on these cookies.

    My best memory is my Grandmother’s apple pie the crust made from scratch and filling from green apples , cinnamon, nutmeg, butter and of course sugar the filling and dough that was left over she let me make turnovers ..now as a adult I tried apple pie with cheddar and lost my mind lol it so good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream

    5 stars
    My favourite family memory of apple pie is my older sister and I would sit on the floor in the kitchen, and as our mother was peeling the apples, we would be eating the apple peels as our Mum peeled the apples. And afterward, we would eat most of the pie as well, with our favourite topping, French vanilla ice cream!!

    our family used to go apple picking, bringing home at least 7 bushels from a friend’s orchard. Our reward was jumping in her inground pool when we were done.
    I would sprinkle sugar on the top crust of these cookies, just like I do with my pies.

  52. Beth Shaffer says

    5 stars
    I love making apple pie using homemade pie filling with a mix of 2 different kinds of apples, such as honey crisp and Macintosh.
    Mostly in the fall I make apple dumplings and freeze them to be used through the wintertime with my mom and this time is one that I will always cherish.

  53. Lily says

    5 stars
    What a fun idea for cookies! I’ve only used prepared pie filling when making turnovers, but I always make my own dough. I find the store bought stuff just doesn’t taste right. My favorite apples to use in Apple pie are honeycrisp. I like a little caramel and vanilla ice cream too. 😋

  54. Sheryl Kieffer says

    I am not a huge cook myself, but my mother in law makes the best apple pie, and it’s even better with a side of vanilla ice cream!

    Do you make homemade apple pie filling or store-bought? I prefer to make my own filling. Store bought filling has too much goo. I have in a pinch bought 2 cans of apple pie filling, fished out all the apples and used them in a pie.

  56. wilsennia rice says

    I make my Apple pie. (everything from scratch) I use a good tarty apple, then cinnamon, sugar, then I dabs of butter all the apples. Then put the top crust on. Spread egg whites on top of the crust, then sprinkle with sugar. then bake

    This recipe Is wonderful and reminds me of my momma making apple pie, always with granny smith apples, for Thanksgiving and all 6 of us kids fighting over the first piece.

    I have made these cookies before. They were a huge hit with my coworkers. When I make my apple pie. I use a home made no fuss pie crust. I like to use Granny Smith for the tartness and a honey crisp and red delicious for the sweetness and crispness. And as for the ice cream or whipped topping. I do both. Which both ice cream and whipped cream are home made. My husband can’t get enough of it. Lol

    My favorite apple pie memory was my grandma teaching me how to make my first pie. She made the best pie ever! We love lots of cinnamon in the apples. We loved it served warm with Vanilla Ice-cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon on the ice-cream! YUMMY!

    I used to go out into my grandparent’s yard and pick the apples right off the tree. All I knew then was that they were green, and sooooo good!! My grandmother made the best homemade apple pie ever!! Even her crust was homemade, in her very, very tiny kitchen. But I always had so much fun cooking with her, especially when she made her delicious pies!! And this recipe sure brings up those memories!

  65. Heather Myers says

    Best memory of apple pie is when my 17 year old daughter made one from scratch for her grandma’s / my mom’s birthday, including the crust. Her grandma loved it! The crust did turn out really good, and in my opinion, crusts are hard to master. We both agree that sweet apples are better than Granny Smith’s, which is what a lot of recipes call for. Honeycrisp all the way for us!

    Have not tried recipe but sounds delicious.
    Favorite family memory: years ago at Thanksgiving my Mom always made 4 different pies. My brother in law checked out the pies and didn’t see apple (it was cooling outside), so after eating and being full when Mom asked what he’d like for dessert he said apple pie thinking there wasn’t any. Much to his dismay he got a piece of apple pie. Rule at our house was you ask for it you better eat it. To this day he doesn’t ask for pie any more.
    Always make my pies with store bought crust, homemade filling using a mix of apples (Granny Smith, Macintosh, and Wolf River or Snow spry if I can get them). Sometimes use a baking mix from orchard near us. Always use nutmeg. Usually not carmel, but ice cream.

  67. Michele McClintock says

    I use granny smith apples for my pies. They are tart so the pie doesn’t come out to sweet. Also I make the crust and filling from scratch. I like to serve with lots of whipped cream.

    My favorite apple pie memory is when I made my first apple pie from scratch and brought it to my boyfriend family Christmas. His dad said it was edible but I believe he was surprised a 18 year old would even attempt it

  69. Jo says

    Excellent recipe. I’ll have to pace myself on these!!!
    I serve cheese now. My husband is from Canada and he eats cheese with his pie. I prefer ice cream. Best apples are Macintosh. Granny Smith if I can’t find Macs!!

  70. janice linkowski says

    use my home made crust,due to sodium content and use most frequentle granny smith apples as I have had better luck for better pies

    My favorite apple pie memory. When I a young girl, 8 or 9 yoa, my parents and I would go out to dinner on Saturday nights at a local family owned Italian restaurant. Everything homemade, made from scratch. My favorite dessert was the apple pie… mouthwatering.. they would serve it warm, with a large slice of cheddar cheese semi melted on top. Absolutely delicious. I have never had apple pie as good as their pie. The owner would come out and talk with us. Beautiful memories,. Beautiful lady.

  72. William Buchanan says

    My favorite time with apple pie is when my sister would make apple pie from scratch but would only make it for Christmas. I sure miss her and the pie!!

    My memory- my dad passed away in 1970- he loved my moms apple pie- whenever one came out of the oven- he would block the kitchen door and say “ stand back everybody- the first slice is mine with ice cream and caramel on it.” He was so much fun❤️ I can’t wait to try the cookie recipe-

  74. Tami Kraft says

    I make my own filling usually.

    I like both whipping cream as well as ice cream; prefer the ice cream when the pie is still warm.

    I have never tried the cheese with apple pie but know a lot of family that has and likes the combination.

  75. Brittney V. says

    These are so cute and look delicious, can’t wait to try!
    My favorite apple pie is my mom’s Apple Crumb. She uses cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger blend with Granny Smith apples.

    Love all your recipes. These cookies look so delicious! We have apple pie with ice cream, a streusel topping. My favourite memories are going to pick apples with the kids. We’d get on a hay ride and do the entire length of the farm. The kids loved it.

    Looks delicious but too time consuming for me.
    I make my Cortland apple pie tossed with cinnamon and sugar and a little flour and then I put pats of butter on top of the apples before I put on a whole-top pie crusts with some design cutouts for steam to vent and lightly sprinkle with more cinnamon/sugar before I bake.
    We like warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream…yummy 😋

    Ice cream with warm apple pie
    Old cheese or medium cheddar cheese works on apple pie
    Tart apples work lovely with a flakey crust
    Nutmeg adds a extra dash of flavour to the apples

  84. Sharon Miller says

    I have many fond memories of my mother baking apple pies for our family of 7. She would cut the pie and leave one small slice for herself. “I know you all like pie too.” She was so unselfish!

    These cookies are delicious and much easier to make than they look!
    We love to add caramel to our apple pie! Depending on how much time I have, I either make my own crust or buy store bought.

    I always make homemade apple pie filling, and use a mixture of apples, like granny smith, honey crisp and Fuji. The apple pie cookies sound wonderful, like all of your recipes!

    The best apples to use for baking is Granny Smith. The Granny Smith apples have more of a sour taste, but once you put spices and sugars with it, they taste great!!!

    I love apple pie! The aroma coming from the oven brings me back to my childhood and my mother peeling Granny Smith apples for her homemade pie! As a diabetic, apple pie has too many carbs, but I can get all the flavor in this cookie, with much less carbs!

    Do you like your apple pie with ice cream or whip cream?

    I love vanilla ice cream on my warm apple pie! The taste of the apples mixed with the melted ice cream is heavenly!!

  94. Toni Broome says

    Hands down homemade crust is the best.
    Now saying that I very seldom have had a crust I love. But when I do the pie is heaven, and it must have ice cream 🙂
    (I have not mastered a good crust yet)

    Favorite Family Apple Pie Memory: This past Christmas, my late mother’s best friend – who is 92 yrs young – baked one of her infamous apple pies for me … she gifted her talent and time and every single bite of that precious pie was beyond delicious. Mom passed in March 2019 … and Patsy’s loving gesture hugged my heart because I am blessed to have had both mom, and Patsy, in my life. Best. Apple. Pie. Ever. xoxo

    I remember walking into my grandmothers house and could smell the wafting of warm sweet apples baking in what will be the most moist, flavorful apple pie with a crust worth dying for. Warm sweet apples baking is what childhood memories are made of. And I carry that on for my own loved ones.

    These cookies are delicious. I used the pie filling this time. Next time I might try to make my own filling using Granny Smith apples or Honey Crisp apples. I’m not a big caramel fan but I did use some on the cookies and they came out great. I’m thinking of trying other flavor fillings. The recipe is really easy and fast to make. I also prefer homemade pie crust but in a pinch the store bought works good. There are so many good recipes to try with apple. I’m glad I tried these.

    My best apple pie memory is back in 2009 during Thanksgiving my mom and I decided instead of buying store bought apple pies that we would make homemade. From the crust to the apple pie filling. That was the best time ever because December 2011 I lost my mom and those were happy times with my mom before she went home to be with the Lord.

    I sometimes like cheese melted over my apple pie for a change of pace but I usually have to be alone because my family is clamoring for ice cream. I like to mix things up & go with cheese, ice cream or whipped cream according to my whim or even cravings of the day.

  126. MaryEllen Coombs says

    I can see using canned apple pie filling in this cookie recipe, but I never use canned filling when baking pies. Apple pie especially is more work because of the peeling and slicing of all those apples (I use Granny Smith), but there is joy in the final result!

    This sounds so good. I would have to omit the cinnamon as I am allergic. I love to substitute nutmeg and clove. Growing up we had Sunday dinner after church at my grandparents. I loved warm apple pie with cool whip on top. Thank you for this recipe. I will have to try my hand at making them soon.

    When I was a girl, it was the practice to eat a piece of cheese with your apple pie. I’ve often wondered why and how it started! My grandmother served amazing apple pie (with and without the cheese) and these cookies will always remind me of her!

    Like homemade pie filling. A combo of tart and sweet apples sauted with butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugars. My grandson doesn’t like cakes but will eat an entire pie for his birthday. Of course it takes a few days. Would use homemade for these cookies but store bought crust is just fine. These look great. Gonna try really soon.

    my favorite memory of making apple pie is, The day that my mother taught me how to make apple pie, I couldn’t peel apples with a paring knife (like she did) so I used a steak knife and my mom kept saying you’re gonna cut your fingers off, which I never did BTW lol. My mom passed away 16 years ago and I still make our apple pie, and I still use a steak knife to peel with even though I own knives that would probably do a better job, and I also own an apple peeler that is useless. I still have all my fingers never even cut a tip off!! Much to my moms surprise!!! Now my sons and I make the apple pie together and when my granddaughter is older I will teach her to make the apple pie too!!

  144. April McBride says

    I love apple pie with Granny Smith apples. My preference is to serve with cheddar cheese but I occasionally switch it up and pour a homemade caramel sauce/glaze over the pie. I recently had foot surgery and as soon as I am able I want to make these cookies – with Granny Smith apples. The cookies look delicious!

    I love caramel sauce with my apple pie, in fact the more the better. I also like a slice of cheese on top of my apple pie, just slightly melted in the micro. Warm apple pie with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream is also a favorite. I prefer a lattice top with an egg wash and sprinkled sugar on top.

  147. Susan Corbin says

    My apple pie memory?
    My mom baked her first and last apple pie when I was 10 years old. She worked so hard and that pie smelled so good! But when she cut the first piece she teared up and threw the whole pie in the trash! She said it was soggy. She never baked another pie. I’ve never been able to bring myself to attempt making a pie all these years later. I’m 67.
