Celebrate Pi day with a Apple Pie Cookie
Celebrate Pi day with a Apple Pie Cookie, Old Parkdale Inn

By Mary Pellegrini

Today is Pi Day

How about celebrating with an Apple Pie Cookies? We put a little spin on the classic apple pie and the results were amazing. For quicker, easier assembly I used refrigerated pie crusts

Apple Pie Cookies from the Old Parkdale Inn

Pi day 2021 6 green apples
1 package refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)
5 ounces caramel sauce
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Ground cinnamon

1) Preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment and non stick spray; set aside.

2) Remove pie crusts from refrigerator so they warm up slightly. This will make them easier to work with.

3) Peel the skin off the green apples, compost. Continue peeling so you have bunch of fleshy, white peels of apple in your bowl.

4) Dust work area with flour and slightly roll out crusts. From one pie crust, cut out circles for the cookies. Cut the second pie crust into 1/2″ strips.

5) Place round pie crusts on cookie sheet. Spread a thin layer of caramel sauce on each cookie, followed by a pile of white apple peels. Using the 1/2” strips, create a tic-tac-toe lattice pattern over each cookie.

6) Beat egg in bowl and add sugar and nutmeg until well blended. Brush cookies with egg wash.

7) Sprinkle cookies with cinnamon. Use more or less cinnamon depending on your preference.

8) Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until cookies are a golden brown. Remove from oven, allow to cool for 5 minutes, serve and enjoy!
