Classic Apple Crisp Cookie Cups

The apple pie filling is really easy too — chop up some apples, throw them into a pot with some ingredients and cook until tender. You’ll want to cool the cookies and the apple pie filling completely before assembly. I made both the day before, but you could make them all in the same day as long as everything cools.

I topped some of these with a simple sugar glaze, but you could use whipped cream or even ice cream if you prefer. Or just eat them straight up like I did.

I recommend microwaving the cookie cups for a few seconds so you get that fresh baked apple crisp taste and texture. The kids are sure to love these. Bite sized and delicious!

Notes & tips for these Apple Crisp Cookie Cups:

  • The cookie part will soften over time as it sits with the filling.
  • The drizzle is optional, but adds another hit of sweetness.
  • These freeze very well! Store in fridge for up to 5 days or in freezer (in an airtight container) for 1-2 months.
  • Best served warm. I recommend microwaving them for 10-15 seconds to heat up!

Oatmeal Cookie Cups:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on med-high until pale and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes).
  • Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition, and beat on high for 1 minute. Add vanilla.
  • Turn mixer to low and add flour mixture, mix until combined. Add oats and mix until just combined.
  • Spray 2 regular sized muffin tins with cooking spray. Using a large cookie scoop (3 Tbsp) scoop dough into muffin tins, press down and push up the sides to create cups.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake cookie cups for approx. 15mins or until browned and mostly set.
  • Remove from oven and (if needed) immediately use a small jar or container to press firmly down in the center to create a well. Cool in pans for 15mins, then place on wire rack to cool completely.
