Autumn Apple Pie Cookies

Good apple pies are a considerable part
of our domestic happiness.
- Jane Austen -



Apples remind me of the joys of autumn and these tasty apple pie cookies 
are the perfect way to welcome the days of sweet fall.

Here is the recipe, my friends. . .

Ingredients:
2 pie crusts
caramel topping
10 oz apple pie filling {store bought or make your own}
milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup sugar




Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.

Sprinkle some flour on the counter
and roll out the pie crusts
{you can use store bought pie crusts for a quicker cookie}

Spread a thin layer of caramel onto one crust.
Chop apples to make them smaller
and spread over the caramel.

Cut 1/2-inch strips out of the other crust
and use them to make a lattice; 
place the strips on top of the apples.
Using a round cookie cutter
cut out circles and place on the prepared cookie sheet.

Brush the tops with a bit of milk.
Combine the cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar
and sprinkle on top of the cookies.

Bake 25 - 35 minutes
or until golden brown.

These apple pie cookies taste incredible hot out of the oven.
The cookies can be stored in the refrigerator,
but I will mention that they tend to get soggy after only a couple of days in the fridge
due to the caramel and the juice from the apples.




Brew yourself some coffee
or make yourself a cup of hot tea
and simply enjoy the taste of autumn :)




Enjoy, dear friends.
Hugs and blessings to you!

Stephanie,

This looks like such a tasty idea! You made them so beautifully too. I hope to make canned apple pie filling soon, so this recipe would be a perfect idea to make!

Debbie Harris said...

Good Morning my dear!
I fist must say "ditto" to Val's comment. :-)
As you know,I have been hoping to make these delicious looking gems but just can't find the right evening to get it done. I want to make them at just the right time so they are fresh out of the oven for your dad. :-) oooh yum!

It kinda like a beautiful Autumn day ahead of us, enjoy it.

Love you~ Mom

Oh, Stephanie, these look absolutely delicious and so remind me of my days in New Jersey growing up as the apples were ripening and we'd make delicious apple pies (with homemade crusts too in those days...hehe!). So yummy looking and beautiful as well! Hugs, sweet friend!
