2 pre made pie crusts or you can make your own of course
1 can apple pie filling, I used my kitchen scissors to roughly chop up the apples while they were still in the can.
For the topping:
1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup All-Purpose Flour
¾ cup oatmeal (quick or old-fashioned)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup butter, cut into chunks
powdered sugar for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Flour a square sheet of wax paper, unroll pie crust in the middle, Using a 2” round circle cutter, cut out as many circles as you can. Carefully place circles on a wax-paper-lined cookie sheet and place in the freezer until needed. Collect dough scraps and roll and cut more circles that you will add to the pan in the freezer.
In a large bowl, mix all of the dry topping ingredients with a fork. Add butter chunks and mix with your fingers until all the butter is incorporated and it begins to form crumbles. Set aside ½ cup of this crumb mixture.
Stir chopped apple pie filling into remaining crumble mixture, just until mixed.
On a parchment-lined baking sheet, or silpat liner evenly place 12 of the frozen dough circles. Place a tablespoon of apple mixture onto the middle of each circle. Then spoon about ½ teaspoon of the reserved crumble mixture on top of each cookie.
Bake at 375°F for 14-15 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove from oven and then transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely. Shake a little powdered sugar over cookies if desired.
