How to make Apple Pie Cookies
This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Mix up the apple pie filling with the spices.
Prep the dough
Roll out one of the rounds and cut into 12 small cookie-sized rounds. Roll out the other pie crust and cut into 1/2 in wide strips that are about 3 1/2″ – 4″ long. (About 56 pieces)

Brush lightly with an egg wash.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool, mix up the glaze, and drizzle over the cookies.

Apple Pie Cookies FAQ
Can you make these in the Traeger?
Yes! Just bake at the same temp that the recipe calls for, but bake them either on your top shelf or on top of a large, inverted, rectangular cake pan to create some more space between the bottom of the cookies and the fire, otherwise the bottom can burn before the top is cooked.
Can you use homemade apple pie filling?
Yes! There is a great recipe from Preppy Kitchen for it here in this Apple Pie Filling post.
We used canned for this because sometimes I just like to hit that “easy” button, but homemade definitely tastes better. I’d recommend precooking the homemade filling a bit to make sure the apples are tender in the final product, and make sure to use a thicker sauce too.
What’s the best way to store these leftovers?
Store these in a covered container in the fridge for 4-5 days. Reheat in the airfryer for 2-3 minutes before eating for the best taste.
