Apple Pie Cookies

So I saw these on Pintrest a while back and I said omgosh I have to try these. I tracked down it's source and adapted it a wee bit. The recipe is simple enough and we all know I hate to bake. So when I do bake it is usually the short cut version. This is one of those versions. And man are these lil cuties are delicious! Happy Fall Yall!


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.

Prepare topping: 
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.
