wesome Apple Pie Cookies

Apple pie cookies are a delightful twist on traditional apple pie, offering all the flavors of the classic dessert in a portable, handheld form. These cookies typically consist of a buttery, flaky pie crust filled with a sweet and spiced apple filling. Here’s a description of how they might be made:

To make awesome apple pie cookies, start by preparing a pie crust dough. Roll out the dough and use a cookie cutter to cut out rounds, similar to making traditional cookies.

For the apple filling, combine diced apples with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little lemon juice to add brightness and prevent browning. 

Place a spoonful of the apple filling onto each round of pie crust dough. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape and crimp the edges with a fork to seal.

Brush the tops of the cookies with an egg wash for a shiny finish, and sprinkle with sugar for added sweetness and texture.

These apple pie cookies are perfect for snacking, sharing, or as a fun twist on a classic dessert.
