I don’t know about you guys but I really, really love apple pie (among many other things) it’s one of my favorite desserts my Mommom makes, after her famous tiramisu of course. I love the flaky crust, the tender apples, the cinnamon-sugar, everything about it. Unfortunately I didn’t have fresh apples at my house last night, but I did have applesauce!
And I thought that there might be nothing better than an apple pie in cookie form. SO GOOD! I had no idea what I was going to end up with. I just started throwing what I had together, a lot of apple sauce, some flour, good amount of cinnamon & a nice helping of cinnamon chips. I was thrilled upon first bite when these delicious treats tasted exactly like an apple pie! It’s pretty amazing…
They’re on the fluffier side, if I had vanilla ice cream I would have made an apple pie a la mode sandwich! Oh my god, that sound ridiculous, maybe I’ll pick up some vanilla ice cream on the way home to try it out.
