Sugar cookie cups baked to be filled, great with frosting, pie filling, lemon curd, and more.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
  • 1 16.5 oz Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough or use my sugar cookie recipe found here.
  • 1 cup flour + 1/2 cup flour for rolling
  • 1 container Pillsbury Caramel Apple Frosting
  • 1 21 oz can Apple Pie Filling (with cinnamon)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix cookie dough with flour
  3. Roll two teaspoons of dough into balls and then flour, place them into mini cupcake lined pans.
  4. Press a well into the center of each ball. (with the end of a rolling pin or wood/plastic tart tool)
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden.
  6. Allow cookies to cool completely. (when they come out of the oven they are puffed up, they will settle as they cool)
  7. Place frosting into a piping bag with a small star tip and pipe around the edges of the cookies two times to create a nice wall on the edge to be able to place the apple filling into.
  8. Cut the apple pie filling slices into small pieces.
  9. Place apple pieces into each well.
Add cinnamon sugar and caramel sauce to the tops of these just before serving.
Here is my easy caramel sauce recipe.
