APPLE CRISP COOKIE CUPS

THESE APPLE CRISP COOKIE CUPS COMBINE CLASSIC OATMEAL COOKIES WITH HOMEMADE APPLE PIE FILLING FOR THE PERFECT COMFORT FOOD.
I am eternally grateful to friends and family members who help me come up with recipe ideas. Sometimes I have a list of things I want to bake, but inevitably that runs out and then, in a panic, I ask people for suggestions.
The idea for these Apple Crisp Cookie Cups came from my friend Sharai who loved my Caramel Cookie Cups so much that she wanted to come up with alternatives that I could make and she could eat. Who am I to say no to that?
I know apples and apple pie are technically more of a fall dessert, but really there’s no bad time for apple pie anything. These apple crisp cookie cups are really simple to make. I used my favourite Oatmeal Cookie recipe, minus the chocolate chips as the “crust”.
I used a large cookie scoop to portion the dough into grease muffin tins, baked them up, and then pressed a small container into the center of each one once they were out of the oven. This needs to be done while the cookies are still HOT, so be careful not to burn yourself.
The apple pie filling is really easy too — chop up some apples, throw them into a pot with some ingredients and cook until tender. You’ll want to cool the cookies and the apple pie filling completely before assembly. I made both the day before, but you could make them all in the same day as long as everything cools.
I topped some of these with a simple sugar glaze, but you could use whipped cream or even ice cream if you prefer. Or just eat them straight up like I did.
