Apple Pie Cookies

Apple Pie Cookies! Easy classic cookies with apple pie filling folded right into the dough!

I guess it’s time to confess. I am an ugly pie maker. Don’t get me wrong, my pies taste amazing.

I even make beautiful flaky homemade pie crust, but they look like a 5th grader made them.

I can never get the crust to do that pretty ripple thing that you shape with your knuckles.

Plus they are always sloppy looking, because I ALWAYS over fill them.

I know I should stop, but then I always have to put in an extra spoonful or two of filling.

Then they overflow and make a delicious pie mess. It’s why I am better at making cobblers.

Cobblers forgive you for adding extra filling.

So if you are like me, this recipe is for you: Apple Pie in cookie form.

4th of July is coming and this year you don’t have to show up with a pie that looks like it already had a firework go off in it.

Instead, you can show up with apple pie cookies. It’s genius.

Head on over to Dixie Crystals to check out this recipe I developed for Apple Pie Cookies!

    I found your blog looking for a recipe for a pineapple coconut cake recipe. Been baking and cooking for over 40 years and can read a recipe and know what the results will be…it was exactly what I was looking for. So thx! Pie making turns out best when u handle the dough the least. Hand oils and so forth affect the final result. If you aren’t comfortable with the knuckle effect…dip a wide tine fork in some egg yolk and cream then sugar and shape the crust with that…multi directional is very pretty on a baked crust. And if u wanna over fill your pie…just use a deeper dish sis Happy baking all! P.S. Grab some play dough and practice the knuckle crust…no harm no foul and your kiddos can learn right along with you!!
