Apple Pie Cookies – sticky and chewy, bite sized caramel apple pies.
These gooey bites bring you the best of both world: fruity-caramelly flavor of traditional pie with all of the convenience of a cookie (no fork required – !!!)
I know, I haven’t really invented hot water, you have seen cookies like this on the internet in the last few years for sure. Mostly, those are quick and simple recipes for which you need just a few simple store bought ingredients (frozen pie crust and canned apple pie filling).
Since our apple tree in the garden did very well this year, it would be crazy of me to buy filling when I can make homemade filling from these fresh apples. Of course, if you have homemade filling, you must have homemade crust. Ok, let’s not kid ourselves, if you think I made caramel sauce myself, well, not this time. How ever much cooking is fun for me, I don’t really want to spend all my free time in the kitchen.
If you like the idea of these mini apple pies, and you don’t really have much time, be free to use the shortcuts and take refrigerated Pie Crust and a can of Apple Pie Filling. In only a few minutes, you will make identically tasty Apple Pie Cookies.
Although the summer is passing by slowly but surely, the thought of autumn treats, the smell of cinnamon and other aromatic spices which spread through the house while the cake with apple or pumpkin is baking in the oven is very comforting. These Apple Pie Cookies with gooey caramel loaded with the cinnamon flavor are the real comfort food for cold and rainy autumn days which are coming.
If you have the time for baking, you mix the crust, peel the apple and make the filling. But, also if you are in a hurry, it doesn’t mean that you can’t treat yourself with warm, juicy mini pies because the store bought ingredients really make the job easier. Coat one crust with caramel, spread the apple pie filling, cut the second pie crust into strips and cover the filling, cut the cookies, sprinkle it with cinnamon-sugar and your mini pies are ready for the oven. After half an hour, you can pour yourself a cup of milk and enjoy your home made apple pies.
