Mini Apple Pie Cookies

I cannot stay away from apples.  With the arrival of fall, it just feels so natural to eat apple-y things!   It seems like everything I have been pinning lately has been fall-ish and apple-y.  I know those probably aren’t real words but they should be!

So it’s no surprise that I pinned this pin for Mini Apple Pie Cookies from Oh Bite It!

Mini Apple Pie Cookies. A perfect fall treat!

I had every ingredient that I needed except for the apple pie filling so off to the store I went.


On my way out of the grocery store, I was following a very attractive Asian lady.


As I was making my way out to my car, she turned around and said “I forgot where I parked my car.”


I replied “Oh my.  I do that all the time.”  She laughed and said “That makes me feel so much better.”


But then she asked me “Do you think I have Alzheimer’s?”  We both kind of chuckled but I told her no, and that she was probably fine.  I asked her if she could pull her keys out and press them to make her car sound.


She said “I have a Prius and it’s an electric car.  It doesn’t beep!”  “I can’t believe I can’t find my car,” she mumbled  And off she walked to another aisle to look for her Prius.

I packed up my own car and as I drove out of the parking lot, I saw her still walking around trying to find her car. I felt so bad for her.

Mini Apple Pie Cookies. A perfect fall treat!

So I don’t want you to forget where you parked when you go to get the items to make these wonderful cookies!  I want you to remember exactly where you parked so you can get home as quick as you can to get these delicious morsels into the oven! These taste just like an apple pie but quicker and easier.  And if I had some vanilla ice cream, that would be the perfect final touch.

After you make them, I know that you’ll agree with me that This Pin Rocks!

Mini Apple Pie Cookies
Recipe type: Cookies
  • 1 Box of frozen Pillsbury Pie Crust (2 sheets per box)
  • Approx. 1 Can of Apple Pie Filling
  • Approx. 1 Cup of Caramel Sauce
  • 1 Egg for the egg-wash
  • 2 tbsp. Cinnamon Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Nutmeg
  • Flour just for sprinkling
  1. Unroll one of the pie crusts and lay it out on your surface.
  2. Spread the Caramel Sauce over the pie crust leaving about ⅛" of an edge
  3. Coarsely chop the apples in the pie filling, then spread on top of the caramel sauce.
  4. Unroll the 2nd pie crust and cut into strips. I used a wavy edged pastry cutter.
  5. Layer the pie crust strips over the apple filling in a lattice formation.
  6. Taking a round cookie cutter, cut your cookies and lay on your cookie sheet.
  7. Beat your egg and with a pastry brush then brush the egg over the top of the lattice pastry strips.
  8. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and some nutmeg.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 or until golden brown.
Depending on the size of your round cookie cutter, this recipe makes between 6-9 cookies.

  1. They look delicious, I love the lattice design.

    • Hi Laura! Um….these were gone within seconds of me taking their picture. They were very yummy! Hope you try them! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  2. These are soo cute and look delicious! I would love to have you share at my party!

    • Hi Katie! We linked up and have you on our Wednesday list! Thanks for your comment. It made my day! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  3. I just had to pin these.

  4. These are amazing! I love seeing something totally new (and delicious looking). Thanks so much for linking up at the Lovely Ladies Linky. I’ll be featuring these on my facebook page this afternoon! :)

  5. These look delicious! Any helpful tips on weaving the lattice on top? Thank you

    • Hi Polly! I just started with one side with a shorter strip and as I worked across, just carefully lifted up whatever strip needed it and carefully laid it back down. I was worried about it too, but was easier than I thought! Thanks for stopping by! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  6. cute idea! I tried this tonight making the dough and the filling from scratch and they turned out okay, but the filling ran out all over the pan…guess the store bought filling would be thicker! oh well!

    • Hi Tracy! Yeah, I think the store-bought is more gelatinous (isn’t that weird word?) and holds together better than from scratch. Did it still taste good? Sure hope so! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  7. This is such an adorable and genius idea! I’m totally pinning and sharing this!

  8. These look amazing! Where would I find Caramel sauce?

    • Hi Chandler! I just get mine in the ice cream section where all the toppings are. Super easy! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  9. Debbie Strickland says:

    Hi Debbie, These cookies look so delicious and I plan to make them for Thanksgiving. My name is also Debbie and I’m “The Oldest Sister” too, the oldest of 7 girls to be exact. My friends and family also calls me Deb.

    • Hi Deb! Sounds like we are kindred spirits! If you have a lot of people coming for Thanksgiving, I would definitely make more than one batch.
      The recipe doesn’t really make a ton and they won’t last because they are yummy! Thanks so much for your sweet comment! Deb

  10. Just made these… YUM! Things I learned: Easiest way to cut up the apples in the pie filling is to leave them all in the can and take a knife and slice back and forth in the can. Also, messy is fine. Yes, a bunch of filling ran out, but that’s ok. More yummy stuff to nibble at. I used a heart shaped cookie cutter for some and they were super cute. Thanks for the recipe. It’s a keeper.

  11. Steven McQueen says:

    On my way to the store to pick up what I need to try these! I’m so excited!

  12. Made this for the family tonight. Instead of cutting it into cookies, I just left it like a pizza. Sliced it up and served with vanilla ice cream. They loved it!!!!

  13. I thought these would be so easy and yummy. I’ve tried three software times to make them and each time the caramel runs over in the oven making a huge mess. I honestly cannot see how yours could turn out so differently.

    • Hi Jennifer! Wow, I’m surprised that this didn’t work for you! I have made these twice and both times did not have a problem and have had many comments about them. For whatever reason, maybe omit the caramel, or just brush a super light layer and then bake. I promise…they really are yummy!! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  14. Is the caramel necessary?

  15. These look Fantastic. Will be making these, using other pie filling flavors for a Christmas gathering coming up soon.
    thank you

    Tip in finding your car in the parking lot: Before leaving home,tie a bright colored ribbon on your antenna or put a decorative tennis ball on your antenna and you will be able to find your car much easier that way; especially during the holiday season

    • Colleen, you are a woman after my own heart! I’m making me a bright green ribbon to attach to my antenna. Brilliant! Thanks for sharing! Deb

  16. Turtle Mom says:

    It sounds like these should be under this pin rocks and not tagged under the flops. Or am I missing something?

    • Oh my! Thanks for the catch! Yeah….this was definitely not a pinned that flopped! Thanks so much! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  17. Jama Bruffett says:

    These cookies look yummy! What an interesting thing to do for a cookie!:)I would have never thought to make cookies from a pie like that. The edges aren’t crimped closed. Will the filling stay in while they are baking? or will the filling run out the sides of cookie? Thanks for the recipe!:) J.B.

    • The filling did run a little but not much and it made kind of a nice chewy, apple-y addition to it. Our family loved them! Deb

  18. Six Figures Under says:

    These are so clever! When I saw the lattice top, I thought “there is no way I am making a lattice top for each coookie,” but cutting them out like this is perfect! Thanks for sharing your secret! Pinning for later :)

    • They are easier than you think, right? And oh so yummy. Thanks so much for stopping by!n Deb – The oldest sister
