Alright…I found a recipe to please the masses. I used this recipe from Oh Bite It for some snacks to bring so a Superbowl party. I am pleased to say that they were a HUGE hit. I didn’t hear a bad thing about them and people were fighting over the last cookie. Definitely a winner.
Here is what you’ll need:
1 box of frozen pie crust (2 sheets per box)
Approx. 1 can of apple pie filling (just enough for a thin layer)
Approx. 1 cup of caramel sauce (just enough for a light coating)
1 egg for egg-wash
2 tbsp. cinnamon sugar
1 tbsp. nutmeg
Flour for sprinkling
A round cookie cutter – any size will do.
Lay out a sheet of pie crust and sprinkle it with some flour and slightly roll it out, just so that you can get more cookies. Pour some of the caramel sauce onto the crust and evenly spread it around, creating a thin layer of caramel. Coarsely chop the apple pie filling into small pieces.Top the caramel layer with a layer of the chopped up apple pie filling. Try not to add too much or you will just have a huge mess in the end. Roll out the second sheet of pie crust the same size as the first sheet, and slice it into strips. Create a lattice crust (just like on a pie) for the top of the pie filling. It is a lot easier to create the lattice on top of the filling instead of doing it on the side and trying to flip it on to the cookies – I promise, it is easier that way. Dip your cookie cutter into some egg wash and cut out your pie cookies. Brush the tops with egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and some nutmeg if you prefer. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them at 350 degrees (F) for about 20 minutes, or until the edges are golden and firm. Let them cool some before removing them, but not too long or they will stick to the pan. Then pour some milk or grab some ice cream and enjoy!!
