Try Some Bite-Size Apple Bliss


Apple pie is a real treat during this time of year, as warm, cinnamon-tinged thick pie filling envelops chunks of apples for a true taste of the holidays. Now you can enjoy this experience as a cookie! With real fruit and heavenly sweet flavor, this tasty take on pie will be the apple of your eye!

Servings: 24 cookies


Ingredients:

  • 1 (16-ounce) container refrigerated pie dough roll
  • 5 small Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and finely diced
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 1⅛ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup oats
  • Pinch of salt
  • 7 tablespoons butter, melted

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and cut out 2-inch circles until all the dough is used. Place one circle into each well of a nonstick cupcake pan.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, add the apples, ¼ cup granulated sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-10 minutes, until apples have softened and the juices start to thicken. Remove from heat, and add 1 tablespoon of the mixture to each pan well.
  3. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, and mix well; add a generous tablespoon of this mixture to each pan well, and gently
    press down.
  4. Bake for 17-19 minutes, and let cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
