My 12 Days of Cookies - Day 8

Every year the Food Network features 12 Days of Cookies. If you sign up here you can receive a new cookie recipe in your inbox each day.

Some of them look pretty good and some of them are not my style. This year I decided to do my own version of 12 Days of Cookies. Feel feel to join me in this challenge and make your own 12 cookie recipes (one each day).

Apple Pie Cookies

adapted from this pecan pie cookies recipe

Cookie Ingredients:

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Filling Ingredients:

canned apple pie filling

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine all cookie ingredients except flour and baking powder in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and baking powder. Beat until well mixed. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in each cookie with thumb; rotate thumb to hollow out slightly. Fill each cookie with 1 rounded teaspoon apple pie filling. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Makes 24 cookies.

Serving suggestions: sprinkle cinnamon on top and/or add a dollop or whip cream
