Bite-size pockets of flaky pie crust filled with an apple-cinnamon filling. Apple pie just got 10 times cuter and 100 times more portable.
I might have a bit of a pie problem.
It only just occurred to me that I have posted two other pie recipes in the past two weeks.
I mean, I assume that you desperately needed some Banana Coconut Cream Pie and some Deep-Dish, Crumb-Topped Apple Pie in your life. I know I did. They’re two very different pies for people with different palates.
Unless you’re feeding me, in which case just give me ALL THE PIE, PLEASE.
Have you ever been to an event where they served incredibly mediocre pie? Pie that just made you wish you had reserved the stomach space for a piece of cake, or perhaps a cookie? Pie that made you wish you had extra pie tucked away in your purse for emergencies such as this?
You’d be surprised at how often this happens to me.
Consider this your Emergency Pie Recipe.
These little Apple Pie Cookies are bite-sized for your convenience.
On the one hand, there’s the portion control factor. You can eat one or two cookies and hide the rest without having an entire pie staring at you, begging to be eaten. On the other hand, there’s the portability factor. Whip these up for your next picnic or summer barbecue – they’re far easier to pack and take with you than a normal pie.
Go ahead, store a few in your purse. Find yourself stuck in a traffic jam? Need to diffuse an awkward conversation with a dessert? Unexpectedly encounter some truly tragic pie? Just reach into your bag – Emergency Apple Pie Cookies to the rescue!
I am not sure what it says about me that I absolutely consider all of these above scenarios appropriate pie-cookie-eating opportunities. I think it must mean I’m living right.
This is my latest recipe for Food Fanatic, but – as always – you can get the recipe right here!
