Apple pie cookies are like miniature pies you don’t have to share

Lovely Little Kitchen

Is there anything better than a warm slice of apple pie? If you’re the type who wouldn’t mind having the entire pie to yourself, you’re going to love these adorable Dutch apple pie cookies from Lovely Little Kitchen.

These baked treats are everything you love about apple pie combined with everything you love about cookies, all rolled into one perfect snack. The bottom has a mini pie crust, and the center has a real apple filling. The top, meanwhile, consists of a buttery crumb topping. The end result is a bite-sized pie you can pop into your mouth. Have more than a couple — we won’t tell.

These scrumptious cookies are made in a standard muffin tin, and they’re a lot easier to put together than a real-deal pie. Amateur bakers welcome! The blogger says you can even use a refrigerated pie crust to make the process even easier. On top of that, an apple peeler will come in handy for peeling, coring and slicing the apples, which is generally the most labor-intensive part of making an apple pie.

Another delicious twist on apple pie cookies comes courtesy of Jo Cooks. If pies and cookies aren’t enough for you, why not throw in some churros? These churro apple pie cookies are crispy, crunchy and oh-so-delectable. These would be the perfect addition to the dessert table at all your upcoming summer parties.

The churro aspect will make your guests feel like they’re roaming the grounds of a state fair. Again, you can take some shortcuts by using refrigerated pie crust and even store-bought apple pie filling. The recipe is super-easy and fun to make, so these cookies would be ideal to make with kids as well.

Of course, apple isn’t the only type of pie that can be made into cookies. If apple isn’t your thing, check out these cherry pie cookie cups or these lemonade pie cookies.
