Ingredients
Apple Pie Filling Ingredients
  • 2 large apples I like Jonagold or other red sweet variety, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice

  • 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice

Maple Spice Cookie Crust Ingredients
Instructions
Directions for the Apple Pie Filling
  1. Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan, stirring to mix.
  2. Cook over low-medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally (apples should be soft, but not overcooked and mushy).
Directions for the Maple Spice Cookie Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. While the apple pie filling is cooking, cream the coconut oil, butter and maple sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining (dry) ingredients, then add to wet ingredients, stirring until just combined.
  4. Fill 3 dozen mini muffin tins about 2/3 full with cookie crust batter.
  5. Once batter is in tins, use clean fingers to make a shallow "well" in the center of each crust. (This will push the batter up the sides toward the tops of the tin).
  6. Use a melon baller or small spoon to add a rounded tsp of apple pie filling to each "well", allowing the filling to create a little mound in the center.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until surface is golden brown and sides of crusts are firm.
  8. Allow to cool completely in pan before running a knife around the edge of each to release them from the pan.
