These little apple pie bites are super easy to make, don't take very many ingredients, and they are soooo good! I made them back in September and kept meaning to post the recipe before Thanksgiving. I made them again during Thanksgiving break & everyone really loved them. They are still yummy a couple days later after sitting out on the counter too. :)
1 pkg snickerdoodle cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 can apple pie filling
caramel ice cream topping
Preheat oven to 375F.
Stir together cookie mix, butter, and egg in large bowl, until a soft dough forms.
Scoop out the dough into small balls and roll them in the cinnamon/sugar mixture that came in the cookie mix package.
Place each ball into a greased mini muffin pan.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges start to turn golden brown. Immediately after removing from oven, make an indentation in the top of each cookie.
I used a little wooden Pampered Chef tart shaper that looks like this but you can use the back of a spoon if you want.
After cooling for a couple minutes, gently pop out each cookie cup and place on a wire rack to cool completley.
Chop apples in the apple pie filling and scoop into each cookie.
Drizzle caramel topping over cookies and top with a sprinkle of the remaining cinnamon/sugar.
