Apple Pie Cookie Recipe


I spend quite a bit of my day on Tumblr now that I am breastfeeding at all hours. I ran across a great recipe for Apple Pie Cookies and I cannot find it again to give credit.  I know it was amazing and I wanna say the woman was a dessert recipe blogger.  Like all she did was desserts.  I searched for it and it brought up tons of recipes.   However I changed it a bit and then totally bombed it so perhaps she doesn’t want to see how badly I messed it up anyways 🙂

This is a wonderful recipe to try out when people are watching you let me tell you.  I had friends over and I couldn’t find anything.  I couldn’t find my rolling pin.  I couldn’t find any of my cookie cutters so I used the bottom of the apple filing can.  Then I couldnt find my spices that I had laid out prior to starting the recipe. They were right in front of me under my parchment paper. I got really frustrated but the cookies turned out delicious.

  • 1 box Pillsbury pie crusts 2 sheets per box
  • 1 can apple pie filling
  • 1 cup caramel sauce
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon/sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup flour
  • round or square cookie cutter


  • Chop the apple pie filing into small bits and set aside
  • Sprinkle some flour before laying down one of the pie crusts. Roll out pie crust to increase surface area.
  • Pour caramel sauce over the pie crust and spread it out to create a thin layer of caramel over the surface.
  • Spread apple pie filing over caramel sauce. Do not put too much, it should be a thin layer.
  • Roll out second pie crust the same way as you did the first. Slice in thin strips.
  • Create a lattice on top of the first pie crust just like you would an apple pie. (This is harder than it sounds)
  • Use egg to create an egg wash. Dip your cookie cutter into egg wash and cut out your cookies. (I couldnt find my cookie cutter so I used the bottom of the apple pie filing can)
  • Sprinkle cookies with cinnamon sugar (the original recipe called for nutmeg but I dont like nutmeg)
  • Place cookies on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 min or until golden.

  1. Apple pie is my favorite pie of all kinds, but in a cookie??? My heart just sighed… If I don’t get off this page, I’m going to lick the screen and perhaps eat my laptop!

  2. 5 stars
    I love mini desserts, so cute! These look especially yummy too, since I love regular size apple pie. But what is an egg wash?
