Apple Pie Cookies
These pillowy Apple Pie Cookies are like miniature hand pies with a pocket of apple pie filling. The dough is a simple cookie dough with a high proportion of milk mixed in, making the final product tender and fluffy, almost like a sweet biscuit. The dough's buttery flavor gives these cookies the taste we often associate with pie dough, which compliments the cinnamon spiced apple filling in the middle. For the apple center, we call for a can of store-bought apple pie filling. Dump it onto a cutting board and coarsely chop so the apple pieces are bite size and easier to fit inside the cookies. After the dough has been made and chilled, roll it out and cut circles to form the cookies. Place a spoonful of the apple filling in the center of half of the circles and place the other circles on top. The soft and sticky dough only requires a fork to crimp and seal the edges. After baking and cooling, top the cookies with a simple cinnamon icing to enhance the flavor and sweetness of these delicious Apple Pie Cookies.
