Apple Pie Cookies


1 store bought pie crust

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 egg, room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 2/3 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons apple pie spice

1 large apple, peeled, cored and chopped

Preheat your oven to 350 and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Set one aside (you’ll bake the cookies on it later), use the other one to make your pie crust.

Roll out the pie crust on cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes then break into small pieces and set aside.

Beat butter and sugars together until light and airy, for about 2 minutes.

Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the egg and vanilla.

Beat until smooth and fluffy, for about 2 minutes.

Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt.

Mix on low speed, gradually increasing to high, then mix until no streaks of flour remain.

Use a rubber spatula to fold in the apple pieces and 1 cup of the pie crust pieces, mixing a few times to evenly distribute.

Use a 1.5 Oz. cookie scoop to scoop out the dough onto your prepared baking sheet.

Bake the cookies for 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges are set, but the centers are still a little doughy.

Allow to cool completely before eating. Enjoy!
