Apple Pie Snickerdoodles

I still have apples on the brain….so I took my favorite cookie recipe and went a little mad-scientist on it:

Ingredients:

-3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or whole wheat works pretty well, too)

-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

-1/4 teaspoon salt

-1 tablespoon baking powder

-2 teaspoons baking soda

-1 cup butter

-2 cups sugar

-2 eggs

-1 tablespoon light corn syrup

-2-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

——

For the snickerdoodle dust:

-3 tablespoons sugar

-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

—–

1-25.5 oz. jar of pre-made apple pie filling

—–

For the crumble topping:

-3 tablespoons sugar

-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1- rounded tablespoon full of finished cookie dough

-Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

-In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon for the snickerdoodle dust, place aside on a small plate.

-Dump the apple pie filling onto a large plate, and then use a knife to chop the apple chunks into small pieces.

You want itty-bitty chunks.

The apple pie filling jar will come in handy for crafts later….right now, it’s got a date with the dishwasher!

-To make the cookie dough, combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl, stopping with the baking soda.

-In your mixer bowl, cream the butter using a paddle attachment.  Add in the sugar, mix it well, then add the eggs, the corn syrup, and the vanilla and blend it thoroughly.  Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix well.  Set aside for a moment.  Just a moment.

The mixer, doing what it does.

-Now in a small bowl or plate, combine the sugar, cinnamon, and scoop of cookie dough to make the crumble–you will have to break the dough up with your fingers and mix it up to get a good crumbly, sandy consistency.  Set aside.

-Scoop a mounded tablespoon or so of dough, form it into a nice little ball between your palms, then roll it around on the plate full of snickerdoodle dust until it is coated on all sides.

-Place on an un-greased cookie sheet, then use your thumb to make a little well in the center of it.  Put about a 1-1/2 teaspoon-sized dollop of apple pie filling the in the well.  Sprinkle some crumble topping over it.

Fill with filling.

Top with crumbliness.

-Repeat until your cookie sheet is full, and pop it in the oven for 10-12 minutes.  As the cookies are cooling, I like to sprinkle an extra dose of cinnamon-sugar dust across the top.

Enjoy!
