  • 1 package (14.1 ounces) of rolled refrigerated unbaked pie crusts (2 crusts)
  • 1 cup of store-bought apple pie filling
  • 1/4 cup of caramel sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of apple pie spice or ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of half and half


Step 1: Begin by gathering all the necessary ingredients. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Allow the pie crusts to come to room temperature as per the package instructions. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside.

Step 2: Using a food processor, lightly pulse the apple pie filling until it reaches a chunky consistency with 1/4-inch pieces (see Cook's Note for alternative method).

Step 3: Roll out one of the pie crusts on a lightly floured piece of parchment paper until it forms a 14-inch circle.

Step 4: Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut 1/4-inch wide strips from the pie dough. Then, cover the cut pie dough with parchment paper or plastic wrap and set it aside.

Step 5: Roll out the remaining pie crust into a 13-inch circle on a lightly floured piece of parchment paper.

Step 6: Spread the caramel sauce evenly over the rolled 13-inch circle pastry. After the caramel, spoon the chunky apple pie filling over the caramel sauce, ensuring it is distributed evenly.

Step 7: Create a lattice pattern with the previously cut pie dough strips on top of the filling by alternately placing the strips of dough.

Step 8: Use a 2 1/2-inch diameter cookie cutter to cut out rounds (cookies) from the pastry.

Step 9: Transfer the cookies onto the prepared baking sheets.

Step 10: In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and apple pie spice.

Step 11: Brush the cookies with half and half, then sprinkle them with the sugar and spice mixture.

Step 12: Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 12 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown (you may need to work in batches).

Step 13: Allow the cookies too cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 20 minutes. Then, transfer them to a serving tray and enjoy them while still warm.

Cook's Note: If you do not have a food processor, you can chop the pie filling on a cutting board into 1/4-inch chunks.
