Butterscotch Apple Pie Cookies ~ Creative Cookie Exchange APPLES

piecookies5

My friend Laura, from The Spiced Life and I, created this awesome monthly event, because, well, who doesn’t love cookies? Breakfast cookies, snack cookies, back to school cookies, Christmas cookies, you name it! If it can be served as a cookie I’m there!

So, each month Laura and I will decide upon a different theme or ingredient, and then, along with some awesome blogger friends, bake up a big batch of cookies adhering to that theme or ingredient. You can join in by baking some cookies that qualify after we announce our theme every month, and then link up using our linky tool, which will be available at all of the participating bloggers’ sites, including this one.

You can also just use us as a great resource for cookie recipes–be sure to check out our Facebook page, our Pinterest Board, and our monthly posts. You will be able to find them the first Tuesday after the 15th of each month! 

The Creative Cookie Exchange October 15 – November 18 2013 

Theme…APPLES!

 Creative Cookie Exchange

My offering for this round of the #CreativeCookieExchange

Butterscotch Apple Pie Cookies.

Made with just 5 (five) ingredients, I love the simplicity of this recipe! Butterscotch topping drizzled over the cookies brings perfect balance of sweet and salty; the lattice top-crust give the impression that you spent all day in the kitchen baking! These charming little fruit pies are as lovely to look at, as they are to eat.

Prep Time

Prep Time
15 min
Ingredients
  1. 1 package pre-made box pie crusts (Pillsbury)
  2. 1 14 ounce can apple pie filling
  3. 3 tablespoons butterscotch topping
  4. 1 egg
  5. 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  6. 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  7. 1 teaspoon butter
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Butter a cookie sheet and mix cinnamon with sugar in a small bowl, set aside
  3. Let pie crust rest at room temperature for 5 minutes, remove pie crust from package and place on a lightly floured surface, using a rolling pin, roll crust slightly for a larger surface
  4. Spread a thin layer of butterscotch over the pie crust
  5. Chop pie filling into very small dice, using 3/4 of a can, spread over crust evenly
  6. Place the other pie crust on a lightly floured surface, roll out slightly as you did with the other crust
  7. cut thin strips to make lattice, about 1/4 inch thick
  8. Start making the lattice by placing strips over the crust with apples, overlapping the strips in a over-under pattern
  9. Beat egg in a small bowl, dip a biscuit or round cookie cutter in egg wash
  10. Using a spatula place cookies on a cookie sheet
  11. Brush lattice with egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar
  12. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown
  13. Drizzle butterscotch over cookie prior to serving
Notes
  1. This is a messy cookie to make but well worth the effort. After you cut the cookie rounds you will have leftover crust and filling, I used the remainder of apple pie filling, to make tucked ramekin apple pies. Add the remaining pie filling evenly to 2 small buttered ramekins, cover with leftover crust and filling, bake for 18 minutes. This is a nice way to salvage the yummy leftover bits

NOTES: On my first run making this recipe, I cut my lattice strips too thick. Next time, I will cut the lattice 1/4 inch thick to create a tighter weave, creating a prettier cookie

  1. I love these! If I had tried this recipe it would have been an utter flop! I am seriously impressed!

  2. This is a brilliant idea! I absolutely love this. Yummm.

  3. Ahh, pie and cookies. Best combination. I was also going to do Apple Pie cookies this month but I ran out of time for the Cookie Exchange. I definitely will still have to make them though! 🙂 These look so tasty!

    • Sophie, I’ve just purchased all the ingredients to make them again. My family loves them, can’t keep their fingers off them. I’m going to adjust my lattice so it’s tighter, I think they’ll look prettier that way!

  4. I can’t wait to bake these apple pie cookies with my daughter. It is hard to believe that something so amazing can be made with just 5 ingredients. I am sure that they will be gone in no time.

  5. Seriously Rebecka! These are so fabulous!

  6. 5 ingredients to an elegant looking apple dessert? I am in! Thank you for sharing this gem of a recipe, Rebecka. And thank you too for creating this wonderful group!

    • You’re so welcome ninjabaker! Baking is not my forte so being a part of this group has pushed out of my comfort zone (entrees, appetizers main dish meals). I’ve been having a lot of fun! Thanks for sharing your delicious cookie recipes!!

  7. I was in love with these from when you posted your sneak peek on in our Facebook group, Rebecka. Gorgeous little individual pies that eat like a cookie!

  8. I’m a huge fan of butterscotch, and since I’m the world’s worst at pie making, I think these will be PERFECT on my holiday table! Thanks for the great recipe, Rebecka

    • Becca, I totally understand! I don’t classify myself as a “real” baker but I love making pies, just ashamed to say that I generally use pre made pie crust! The good news is that these little gems were so easy to make and they were a hit with my family. I know they would dress up any holiday table!

  9. Your cookies look mighty pretty and tasty to me. Love how there are only a few ingredients. Anyone can make a batch of these in no time. Pinned.

  10. I have never seen cookies like that before, WOW!! I am totally impressed. Love them!!

  11. Lady Nann says:

    WOW Rebecka those look absolutely over the top delish! Wish I could grab one right through the computer. You’ve got a winner there!
