The Shady Porch: Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

I love the look of these cookies...the lattice tops and golden apple filling are like personal apple pies. Great anytime, but I especially think they're perfect for Fall coffee breaks, and talk about a perfect sweet snack for game-day gatherings. Not only are they cute, but they are really EASY-to-make, too! There are only 3 ingredients...no flour, no eggs, not even a mixer for these apple treats! So let's grab our cookie sheets and make a batch or two!

Directions
  1. Remove pie crusts from packaging and allow to rest at room temp for 5-10 minutes. Flour work surface and open one of the crusts. 
  2. Spread a thin layer of caramel topping evenly over crust. 
  3. Take the can of pie filling and run a knife through it to mince it to much smaller pieces, then spread about 1/2 to 3/4 of the can over the caramel layer. [I used about 3/4 of the can on my cookies]
  4. Dust apple layer with cinnamon-sugar. 
  5. Now open the second crust and use a pizza cutter to cut into thin strips to make the lattice tops.
  6. Using the pie crust strips, create a lattice top over the apple filling.  NOTE: I had no previous experience with lattice tops (as you can probably tell), so in case it is new to you, too, here is a nice tutorial.]   
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  8. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray. 
  9. Use a round cookie cutter [I used a drinking glass] to cut out your cookies and place them on prepared cookie sheet. 
  10. If desired, at this time, each cookie can be brushed with an egg wash or cream and sprinkled with coarse sugar.
  11. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until light golden brown.
recipe - Oh Bite it!
