These apple pie cookie cups are perfect for the upcoming holidays and parties. And they’re a great alternative to pie if you don’t feel like going through all the hassle of making pie crust. I love pie as much as the next person, but making the pie crust, however good it might be? Nope!
These guys are tiny little packages of caramel apple goodness wrapped up in a cookie crust, and their individual servings make perfect finger food. And they take care of that apple pie craving!
You can use store bought apple filling if you want these to be extra easy, but I also have a super easy (and quick! 15 minutes or less!) recipe for apple pie filling that you can try right here.
These apple pie cookie cups are probably my new go-to fall recipe. They’re that easy and good!
Apple Pie Cookie Cups
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1cup brown sugar
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups apple pie filling
Preheat oven to 375.
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, and mix thoroughly.
In separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking powder.
Slowly add flour mix to bowl, on a low setting. Continue until completely combined.
Take small ball of cookie dough and place in muffin tin, creating a well in the center of the cookie.
Cook for 17-20 minutes, or until fork comes out clean.
While still warm, use a spoon to re-hollow out the well in the center of the cookie. Allow to cool.
Fill each cup with a spoonful of apple pie filling, and drizzle caramel over the top of cookie cup.
Top with whipped cream or serve plain.
