Caramel Apple Pie Cookies offer the delightful flavors of a classic apple pie in a small, hand-held form. These cookies feature a spiced apple filling and a drizzle of caramel, perfect for autumn or any time you crave a cozy treat.


For the Cookies:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Apple Filling:

  • 2 cups finely diced apples (about 2 medium apples)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

For the Caramel Drizzle:

  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce (store-bought or homemade)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  5. For the apple filling, combine the diced apples, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon flour in a bowl. Toss to coat the apples evenly.
  6. Take a tablespoon of cookie dough and flatten it into a small circle on your palm. Place a spoonful of the apple filling in the center.
  7. Take another tablespoon of dough, flatten it, and place it on top of the apple filling. Seal the edges and gently flatten to form a cookie. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.
  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, drizzle the caramel sauce over the cookies.
  11. Serve and enjoy your Caramel Apple Pie Cookies!
