Watcha’ Cookin’–Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

Watcha Cookin'
I have been wanting to make this Caramel Apple Pie Cookie recipe for a while so since it is Thanksgiving tomorrow I figured no better time like the present.
I used two websites as my guide. Tablespoon and Oh Bite It.
Both websites have great step by step instructions for this recipe.
You will need:
1Pkg Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust
1 Jar Caramel Sauce ( I used the squeeze bottle kind since you only use enough to spread over the crust.)
1 Can Apple Pie filling or you could make your own filling.
1 Egg Lightly Beaten
1 TBSP Cinnamon Sugar
1 TBSP Flour for sprinkling on surface
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. You might want to go ahead and grease two pans because someone didn’t and had to scramble to do it with sticky hands covered in apple pie filling and dough.
Sprinkle clean surface with flour and roll out dough just a little .

Then spread some caramel sauce on one of the pie crusts all the way to the edges.

Then chop up about a 1/2 can of apple pie filling. You want it pretty well chopped so it will spread easy.
Spread that all the way to the edges as well.

Then with your other pie crust cut into even strips about 1/2 inch wide and make a lattice top on top of the filling.

Don’t laugh at me I did not cut mine even. Smile with tongue out
Next you will use a 3” cookie cutter and will cut out your cookies. You should get about 10.
Use a metal spatula to place them on your greased cookie sheet. (I had to gently pull away the excess carefully  to do this but don’t throw that excess away!!)
Now beat your egg and brush across the strips on the cookies and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. (you see the wonky ones to the right that was all the excess. I just kind of formed whatever shape I could and put them on another cookie sheet. No need for any yumminess to go to waste!)

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
I think I did pretty good for my first try.

Even the wonky ones turned out pretty.
