Mouthwatering Apple Pie Cookie Bake

One of my favorite dessert recipes is anything to do with Apple Pie. There’s nothing like crisp apples, cinnamon, a delicious pie crust, topped with some vanilla ice cream. Yum! Never in a million years though did I think about turning my favorite dessert into a delicious cookie! This recipe calls for 19 ingredients but is oh so worth it! 

Apple Pie Cookie

Delicious apples baked in a pie type cookie for you to enjoy!

For Apple Pie Filling

  • 3 apples (about 1 lbs.-peeled and sliced into 8 slices each)
  • 1-2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoon white sugar
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoon corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • A dash of nutmeg
  • ¾ cup water

For Pie Crust

  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter cut into cubes-chilled
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ cup ice water
  • or you can use 1 package Refrigerated Pie Crust (2 crusts)

For Filling and Topping

  • 1¾ cup apple pie filling-chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup caramel sauce
  • 1 egg -lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup sugar

To make Apple Pie Filling

  1. Toss sliced apples with lemon juice and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan or a pot combine cornstarch, sugar, browned sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and water. Stir well and bring to a boil over medium-high heat whisking constantly. Let it boil 2 minutes until thick, then stir in apple slices.
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover the pot and let it simmer about 10 minutes. Apples should be soft but not mushy (cooking time depend on sort of apples). Remove apples from heat and leave them covered to soften and cooled.
  4. When it’s cooled take out the apples from the sauce and chop into small pieces, set aside.

To make Pie Crust

  1. In a large mixing bowl place flour, salt and sugar and mix to combine.
  2. Using a pastry blender incorporate chilled butter cubes into the flour mixture(the mixture should resemble coarse meal)
  3. Drizzle 2 tablespoons ice water over the mixture and blend, repeat with another 2 tablespoons water. When you squeeze the dough it should holds together (you may have to add more water if the dough crumbles, add 1 tablespoon at a time)
  4. Divide the dough into two equal pieces, flatten and form two disc, pack each disc with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
  5. Lightly dust working surface with flour, place chilled dough, dust the dough and the rolling pin, too. Turn the dough as you rolling to prevent it from sticking. Roll it out ⅛-inch thick.
  6. Repeat the process with the other disc.

To assemble the cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F, line cookie sheet with parchment paper, spray with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. Spread the caramel sauce onto one pie crust.
  3. Spread chopped apple pie filling over caramel and gently tap the filling with your palms.
  4. Cut second pie crust into ½ inch strips and create a lattice top over the filling.
  5. Using round cookie cutter (about 2.5 inch) cut out the cookies and place them onto baking sheet.
  6. Beat the egg with a fork and brush the top of cookies.
  7. Combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle the cookies generously.
  8. Bake 20-30 minutes (until golden brown).

    @Jodi – that’s to bad. I figured that i have to remove the fruit juice promt it. Maybe if you make a thicker dough it you can somehow avoid this problem.

    Anyway, I do have some apples at home and I think I’m going to try this recipe tonight.

      Let me know how it turns out. Mine turned out like apple pie and with my boys got eaten like right away. LOL

    That looks yummy, but I wonder how you remove the moisture from the apples so they don’t became to “slippery”, if you know what I mean.

    You can let them more in the oven, but then the cookie might get burned.

    Do you have a solution for this ?

      This particular recipe you can’t. The cookies are chewy and sticky like an apple pie and don’t last forever. If you want them to last longer and not be slippery like a pie carmelized, half bake the apples before adding to your cookie recipe.
