Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

We  both enjoy the traditional apple pie, but when we saw these smaller ‘cookie’ versions, we just had to give them a try.

We found this recipe by Darling Gourmet during our many hours browsing Pinterest…yes, we are ALWAYS on Pinterest!  While the recipe only calls for 6 ingredients, it does take a good 25-30 minutes to prep.  Now, it may be possible that it took us a little longer because we were chatting and hanging out but who cooks without chatting?

Ingredients
1 package Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts
1 jar caramel sauce
1 can apple pie filling
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
2 tablespoons Gold Medal flour for sprinkling

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  There is a lot to be done while the oven is heating up!

Make sure you have enough space to spread out.  Go ahead and sprinkle a little flour on work surface.  Roll out one of the two pie crusts to slightly increase the surface area.

DSC_0847You should end up with approximately 12 circles.

DSC_0854Once we had all our cookies cut, we placed them on a non-stick baking sheet and spread a thin layer of caramel sauce over the crust.

DSC_0884Once you have cut the applies into smaller pieces, place a tablespoon of filling onto each of the cookies.  We did not use the entire can of filling.

DSC_0889Now its time to prep the tops of the cookies.  Sprinkle a little flour on your work surface again.  Roll out the other pie crust dough and use a knife to cut a bunch of strips about ½ inch wide.

Using the strips, make a lattice over the top of the pie cookies.  Once all of the cookies have tops, brush a little of the egg across the strips on the cookies and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

DSC_0902Pop the cookies into the over for approximately 20 to 25 minutes.

DSC_0920These turned out GREAT.  We actually like them more than traditional apple pie!  We would suggest giving these a try the next time you are looking for a treat for yourself or for others.

Happy Monday!
