Dutch Apple Pie Cookies

These are cookies, but they could just as easily be called Incredible Tiny Apple Pies With Streusel Topping. That’s because these little treasures are sort of apple pies in a smaller form.

Instead of a cookie sheet, you’ll be using a muffin tin. The recipe calls for a store-bought pie crust that will be divided into 2″ circles using a cookie cutter.

Granny Smith Apples

These large green apples are almost always used in apple pie in some amount, although it’s not a hard and fast rule. They have a nice, crisp, tart taste so they really blend well with the sweetness of the other ingredients.

The Streusel for Dutch Apple Pie Cookies

The delicious, crunchy topping for our cookies is made from oatmeal, granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, and flour. It’s very simple to make. So much so that you may want to make extra so you can use it to top of other recipes or even ice cream.

These would make a great Christmas gift.

They look and taste different than a regular cookie, so they’d for sure stand out in a sea of Christmas cookies.

They are also gorgeous to look at. Gently and carefully place them in a beautiful, paper-lined tin and your gift-giving game is on a whole new level.  People sometimes get tired of all the chocolate over the holidays. Offering up some sweet treats that have no chocolate whatsoever is a good way to be sure everyone gets a taste of something they really love.
