One thing that I adore about the fall is all the amazing flavors from pumpkin (like this amazing Pumpkin Oatmeal) to apples. You can see a roundup of amazing apple recipes here, but this recipe if I do say so myself, is the best damn dutch apple cookie recipe you will see. It is perfection in a cookie.

If you have never had a dutch apple cookie, let me try to paint a picture for you. They are really a little version of an apple pie, if I may. You have a layer of pie crust on the bottom, then a beautiful finely diced cinnamon apple filling, with a buttery crumb topping. You wanna make some now don’t ya? Well. Let’s get to it.

The first thing you will want to do is to get all of your ingredients together, which are listed below. Then it is time to start cooking and prepping. Prep the apples by peeling, coring, and finely dicing them then set them aside. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and cut out circles about 2 inches in diameter. Gather and re-roll unused dough and cut additional circles, if needed. Place the circles in the bottom of each muffin well.

 

Once you have that finished which should not take any time at all it is time to start that filling. Using a medium saucepan, on medium heat add the apples, sugar, lemon juice, and corn starch. Stir and continue to cook for about 5-19 minutes  The apples should soften slightly and the liquid should begin to thicken. Take off the heat.

Add one tablespoon of the apple mixture on top of each pie dough.

It’s All about the topping so let’s make that now! Many would say that this amazing topping is a Streusel type topping and honestly that is what I call it as well. Add the flour, brown sugar, sugar, oats, and salt to a medium bowl and mix till combined. Next, add the melted butter and mix until all is combined. Top off each apple mix with a tablespoon of the streusel.

Lastly, it is time to cook these damn good cookies! Bake at 350 degrees for 17-19 minutes. Remove from the oven but allow the cookies to cool in the muffin tin for about 10 minutes. You then can transfer to a wire rack and drizzle with caramel sauce.
