Yummy Apple Pie Cookies ! These cookies are unlike any other with a pastry crust and warm apple pie filling!

Ok, first thing I have to tell you before I get into this… those apples in the photo… they are the first ever from our tiny new little apple tree so I am proud of them.  Please stop and admire them for a moment.  Thank you.

Ok, these are seriously the most adorable cookies… pies?  pookies?  I don’t know but they are darn cute and I had a blast making them.  I have to tell you I am not a pie lover, never have been.. but I really loved these!  And don’t worry, if you’ve never made a lattice crust, it’s easy.  If you can weave, you can make a lattice crust!  I’ve put together a tutorial for those of you who need a refresher!

As I was inspired by Building Buttercream’s Blueberry Pie Cookies, I made these Apple Pie Cookies one by one, I later found an even better method to make the same tasty cookies even faster!  You need to head on over and visit Amy at Oh, Bite it to see how she puts her cookies together. (While you’re there, make sure you stop and take a peek around!)


How to Make a Lattice Crust!  <– Pin that too!

If apple isn’t your thing, swap it for blueberry or cherry pie filling.  I know I talk about being frugal and saving money but please buy the brand name pie filling if you get apple… I’ve had store brand (and not just one) and it just isn’t the same!  So, if you’re going to splurge a little, this is a good place to do it!

Or even better…  Make your own Homemade Apple Pie Filling!!  Delish and easy!

These were extra good with a  little dollop of whipped cream right as we served them…  but of course just put it on right as you serve! These apple pie cookies are definitely a crowd pleaser!

 Items you’ll need for this recipe

Apple Pie Cookies

Did you make this recipe?


  • 1 box ready to use pie crust (2 crusts total) (You can use homemade double pie crust if you prefer)
  • 1 can apple pie filling or homemade apple pie fillling
  • 1 egg white
  • 1-2 tablespoons large sugar crystals (regular sugar will work too) (optional)
  • whipped cream for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Remove pie crusts and let sit 15 minutes per box instructions. Lay out parchment paper and unroll pie crusts. Using a 2.75″ circle cutter, cut circles out of one of the crusts (I made 14 and then at the end I made a couple more with leftovers). You can re-roll the scraps to make more circles. Our reader Julie suggested using the can from the pie filling as a cutter!! What an awesome idea!
  3. Cut strips (approx 1/4″ or as thick as you’d like) out of the second pie crust. (I used a pastry wheel to make them pretty).
  4. Open the can of pie filling and pour it onto a cutting board. Dice the apples into small chunks.
  5. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of pie filling on each circle (you may have some left over). Using the strips of pastry you cut, weave them on top of each circle to create a lattice. View the How to Create a Lattice Crust tutorial here
  6. Once the lattice is completed, use the same cookie cutter to trim the stray bits of pastry. I used a child’s fork to create the design along the edges. Brush each cookie crust with egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake 12-16 minutes or until browned.


My cutter was 2.75″ but if you have one close (2.5-3″) it should work just fine!

  1. Wow, I was excited for these but all of the ingredients are store bought. How disappointing.

  2. And that’s the part I liked about it…….LOL!

  3. If you do not have a cookie cutter hands, just flip over the open can of filling and use it for the base of your cookie…..good for in a pinch.

  4. These could be “tweeked” in sooooo many ways…add some cinny/sugar, dust with powder sugar, make some of that white icing with powed/sugar, add some all spice. in the fall how bout using pumpkin with pie spice. Alot of possibilities. Thanks for the idea. I wonder what it would be to replace the pie crust with actural sugar cookie dough? Hummmmm….

  5. I am certainly going to try this. I am thinking lemon. My family loves lemon pie and what a cute and convenient way to serve. Maybe with a little powdered sugar sprinkled on top.

  6. Looking forward to making these. Doesn’t the filling leak and make a burnt mess on the bottom of the pan?

  7. I just made these, haven’t tried one yet, but I made them in the shape of hearts!

  8. Oh wow! My grandmother used to make these kinds of cookies all the time! :D Thank you for posting the recipe!
    I recently made some and had a FIELD DAY. I was making pie crusts and made several different fillings to go in them. If anyone wants to try, make some traditional Philadelphia strawberry pie filling, pumpkin pie filling or key lime pie filling.

    Those three were a HUGE hit with my friends and family. And this year, I will be adding them to the big cookie trays I give out to my friends! :)

    Thanks again! :)

  9. I just made apple pie cookies and pumpkin pie cookies, using homemade pie fillings. My husband and daughters, LOVE them!

  10. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I will have to make a few changes as I have celiac disease, and wheat & dairy allergy but they look amazing.

  11. Love these recipes (cookies, lattice, filling ) thank you for sharing!! Made some apple pie filling from our apples a couple of years ago. Going to try this recipe this year!!

  12. Really guys? The purpose of this recipe was to make it quick! I have 5 children and 3 are in school, this recipe is a time saver for me. THANKS!

  13. Could I use buiscuit dough that’s in the pills bury cans or the crescent rolls one? I have tons of them in my fridge :-)

  14. I was smiling while reading this….can not wait to make these for everyone & everywhere. Was looking for that perfect, yet oh do simple & easy, recipe & I found it!!!! Only wish I saw it before I ran to Target for a quick grocery run~too lazy to do a big one~don’t judge…

  15. A quick tip for dicing items in a can canned fruit, tomatoes etc it to remove the top of the can and inset your kitchen scissors and cut. Rotate the scissors as you cut and you will end up with a nice rough dice. No muss, no fuss.

  16. Can’t wait to make these. I think they will be a great addition to my recipes.

  17. What if you don’t have parchment paper? Can you just bake them on a air bake cookie sheet?

    • Yes you can just bake them on a cookie sheet. You’ll want to make sure the filling doesn’t leak so the cookies don’t stick.

  18. Can you assemble these and freeze/refrigerate them a day ahead before baking?

  19. Totally making these for a bake sale this weekend. Thanks for a quick, easy, and cute idea!

  20. They look so good I want to try making them

  21. How should I store these- room temp or fridge? I’m serving tomorrow and afraid of the crust getting soggy if I cover them.

  22. can I make these ahead of time?

  23. Just made these for Christmas they are awesone
