Wouldn't they be perfect little bites of heaven for winter!
Thankfully they agreed to let me share the recipe...
1 box of frozen Pillsbury 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 just for sprinkling
A round cookie cutter... any size you like
Lay out a sheet of pie crust, sprinkle it with some flour and slightly roll it out, just to increase its surface area. Pour some of the caramel sauce (just enough to coat the crust) 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, making sure not to add too much pie filling. 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. DON’T do what I did and create the lattice on the counter, it’s not fun getting it on top of the bottom crust... ugh! Create your lattice on top of the actual filling, as if it were a pie!
Dip your cookie cutter into some egg wash and cut out your Pie Cookies. Brush the tops of them with some egg wash and sprinkle them with the cinnamon sugar and nutmeg.
Place them onto a baking sheet and bake them at 350F degrees for approx 20-25 minutes, until they’re golden and firm. Let them cool just a little.
