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
My offering for this round of the #CreativeCookieExchange
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.
- 1 package pre-made box pie crusts (Pillsbury)
- 1 14 ounce can apple pie filling
- 3 tablespoons butterscotch topping
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon butter
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- Butter a cookie sheet and mix cinnamon with sugar in a small bowl, set aside
- 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
- Spread a thin layer of butterscotch over the pie crust
- Chop pie filling into very small dice, using 3/4 of a can, spread over crust evenly
- Place the other pie crust on a lightly floured surface, roll out slightly as you did with the other crust
- cut thin strips to make lattice, about 1/4 inch thick
- Start making the lattice by placing strips over the crust with apples, overlapping the strips in a over-under pattern
- Beat egg in a small bowl, dip a biscuit or round cookie cutter in egg wash
- Using a spatula place cookies on a cookie sheet
- Brush lattice with egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar
- Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown
- Drizzle butterscotch over cookie prior to serving
- 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
