This recipe starts with pre-made pie dough — although you could definitely make your pie crust from scratch if you’d like.

Next, is classic apple pie filling. Bubbly, gooey, and warm fresh-baked from the oven, it’s hard to beat the sweet, luscious flavor.

I chose to do a lattice crust for the top layer of pie crust. You can keep it simple and do a regular crust on top if you’d rather.

Add a little butter and a dusting of cinnamon sugar before baking. You’ll be rewarded with flaky, golden-brown apple pie cookies that look like beautiful mini pies.

A drizzle of caramel on top before serving complete this amazing goody.

This delicious, homemade treat will become one of your favorite desserts. You’ll think it’s the best!

How to Make Apple Pie Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the apple pie filling onto a cutting board and cut the apples into smaller, bite-sized pieces. Set aside.

Place a silicone baking sheet onto a cookie sheet.

Roll out one of the pie crusts onto the silicone sheet. A rolling pin can be used to lightly flatten out the dough if needed.

Spread the salted caramel sauce from edge to edge on the pie crust dough.

Top with the chopped apple pie filling and spread edge to edge. Set aside.

On a cutting board roll out the second piece of pie crust. A rolling pin can be used to lightly flatten out the dough if needed.

Using a pizza cutter and a ruler slice the dough into 1/4 inch strips (or eyeball it!). Using these strips do a lattice crust on top of the apple pie filling crust. OR you can just lay some strips vertical and then horizontal if latticework is not your thing!

Using a 2 3/4 ” circle cutter cut out the cookies leaving a little space in between them. Remove the extra dough from around the cookies and just leave the cookies in place on the silicone baking sheet to bake. (You can place all the extra dough and pie filling into a small, greased pie pan and make a mini pie!)

Brush cookies with egg wash.

Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mix.
