Apple Pie Cookies Recipe

These mini apple pie cookies are a fall favorite in my family! Sometimes you just need a little dessert and these cookies always do the trick.

We decided to take the classic apple pie and turn this comforting treat into a bite-sized dessert that you can enjoy anytime! But the best part is that they don’t lack that classic comforting taste that a regular apple pie offers (but you don’t even need a rolling pin!)

These cookies are the perfect fall dessert. They always have a place at our Thanksgiving table!

Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

Serves — 10
These caramel Apple Pie Cookies are like a mini-apple pie but in a delicious cookie!
Prep Time 25 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 50 mins

Ingredients
  

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

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the apple pie filling onto a cutting board and cut the apples into smaller, bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  • Place a silicone baking sheet onto a cookie sheet.
  • Roll out one of the pie crusts onto the silicone sheet. A rolling pin can be used to lightly flatten out the dough if needed.
  • 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.
  • On a cutting board roll out the second piece of pie crust. (A rolling pin can be used to lightly flatten out the dough if needed.)
  • Using a pizza cutter and a ruler slice the dough into ¼ inch strips (or eyeball it!). 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 lattice work is not your thing!
  • Using a 2 ¾” circle 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. (You can place all the extra dough and pie filling into a small, greased pie pan and make a mini pie!)
  • Brush cookies with egg wash.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mix.
  • Place cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Jenn’s Notes

TIPS:
  • Make sure that your pie dough is slightly thawed, room temperature is best. If it is too cold the crust will crack and won’t roll
  • You can place all the extra dough that you remove from around the cookies and pie filling into a small, greased pie pan and make a mini pie!

  1. I didn’t see in the instructions the same instructions in writing as was in the video where the little pies were cut first and then the apple pie filling was added. The instructions just said make one big pie and then smaller ones to top it off with. Not sure what I was seeing. I might be wrong or maybe I’m missing something

    1. Yes, they are a little bit different. That is an alternate way of making the cookies (the original way we made them but found this way easier.) You can make them either way!
