Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

There’s only thing more American than apple pie. And that’s apple pie cookies! What could be more American than combining two of the most beloved traditions into one luscious bite? And to make it that much better, we’re going to add some gooey caramel!

What You’ll Need

1 package Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Pie Crusts SAVE $
1 jar caramel sauce
1 can apple pie filling
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
2 tablespoons Gold Medal™ flour for sprinkling

How to make it

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2 Sprinkle a little flour on a clean work surface. Roll out the dough just a teensy-weensy bit to slightly increase the surface area. (You don’t want it too thin).

3 Spread a thin film of caramel sauce over the crust.
4 Chop up the apple pie pieces so they’re smaller. Spread some of the apple pie mixture over the caramel sauce. Don’t use quite the whole can.
5 Sprinkle a little flour on your clean work surface and again, you know the routine ;just roll the dough out very slightly. Use either a pastry cutter or a knife to cut a bunch of strips about 1/2 inch wide.
6 Using the strips, make a lattice over the top of the pie.
7 Get out a round cookie cutter and cut out the caramel apple pie cookies. Using a 3-inch cookie cutter, you should end up with a dozen. Use a thin spatula to carefully transfer the cookies over to a non-stick baking sheet.
8 Brush a little of the egg across the strips on the cookies. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
9 And don’t forget to bake up all those luscious leftover scraps, too!
