‘Tis the season for all things APPLE! The kids and I were in the mood for some relaxing afternoon baking and we are excited to share this unique recipe with you! It’s part pie, part cookie, and completely perfect for the fall (or any time of year if you love cookies like we do). Apple cream pie cookies not only taste decadent, they will leave your house smelling like autumn apples!
Apple Cream Pie Cookies
This particular recipe uses one of my favorite things: apple butter! Don’t you love apple butter too? It smells and tastes delicious! The kids couldn’t wait for the cookies to be done and they even ate a couple that were fresh and warm (lucky kids!). This recipe has two parts, the cookie part and the filling part. What I love is that they don’t take long to bake but, based on the taste, you wouldn’t know it!
These apple cream pie cookies are an autumn favorite of mine. I love the way this cookie looks and the taste! I can’t explain how delicious they are! Each bite has the perfect combination of apple, cinnamon, spice, and cream. They look great on a cookie plate and taste great! If any apple cream mixture remains, it can be served warm over vanilla ice cream!
