In the middle of winter, there’s nothing better than warming your belly with a piping hot slice of apple pie!

Still, we sometimes crave pie in a more grab-and-go form. Pie is wonderful, but it’s not easy to eat in the car.

That’s why we love any recipe that takes all the traditional pie fixings and turns them into something we can eat on the run, like these adorable apple pie pizzas!

In the same vein, we’re totally stoked for our latest recipe, apple pie cookies. They’re cute as can be, simple to make, and of course, delicious.

An ordinary pie might require lots of careful fussing to get just right, but these cookies take the mystery out of the whole process.

In fact, you can make your own filling and crust if you like, but we happen to think they taste just perfect with the store-bought versions.
