These Apple Pie Cookies have that classic apple pie taste in a bite-size cookie shape. You could call this mini hand pies, but I keep them super light and fluffy. Top with a little whipped cream if you want to be adventurous, this is a must try recipe!
Apple pie has to be one of my favorite desserts. Something about the sweet fruit and that buttery crust gets me every time.
My Dutch Apple Pie is a reader's favorite and since I love it so much as well I love trying it in new ways.
How to make Apple Pie Cookies:
These Apple Pie Cookies are so simple to make. I used a mason jar to cut out small pieces of crust then filled it with apple pie filling and sealed another piece of crust on top.
- Apples (diced small)
- Brown Sugar
- Lemon Juice
- Ground Cinnamon
- Pie Crust (store bought or use this Homemade Pie Crust recipe)
- Egg (whisked)
Step one: Get started by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out the pie crust and cut it into circles. Use a mason jar lid or measuring cup to get the circles.
Step two: Mix together all remaining ingredients.
Step Three - Place pie filling on one pie crust cut out and place another on top. Press a fork around the edges to seal and cut slits in the top to vent. Be careful to not overfill.
- Time Saving Tip: I love using homemade apple filling but you can save time and use store bought. Just slice apples to make sure they are small enough to fit into the cookies.
Step three: Place pies on a baking sheet and brush the top with egg yolk. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
- Pie Crust: You can use a store-bought or homemade pie crust. If you are making homemade then check out my recipe for Homemade Pie Crust. It's so simple to make and taste amazing. Remember that a store-bought crust and my homemade recipe makes 2 crust and for this recipe I use 4. If you want to use 2 (one crust recipe or package) just half the apples that you will make.
- Cooking Time: Your cooking time and temperature can vary according to what crust you are using. If you are using a store-bought crust then read the package directions and bake according to those directions.
- Pie Filling: Make sure to not overfill your apple pie cookies. You do not want it leaking out. This recipe should work great with any pie filling. You can try cherry, peach, or even blueberry. Just make sure all fruit is cut into smaller than usual pieces to make sure they fit inside your cookie.
