Apple pie is one of the greatest American comfort food of all time. However, some foodies may be hesitant to try their hand at making an apple pie from scratch because it's intimidating - not to mention, tediously tiring as well.
If you're looking for treats that will give you the same heart-warming flavors of sweet apple and cinnamon, here are a few great recipes that taste like apple pie but are not pies.
A lot of these treats have sticky ingredients like pastry dough, sugar or cream cheese. It's a great idea to invest in good-quality baking tools like a non-stick baking mat if you're fond of recipes like these. Not only will using non-stick mats help preserve your baked product's intended shape and form - clean up in the kitchen will also be a lot easier!
Churro Apple Pie Cookies (Jo Cooks)
"If you wanted to you could even stick a lollipop stick on them and turn them into churro apple pie lollipops, how cool would that be? But anyway you make these they are going to be totally adorable, perfect to make with your kids, but perfect for the adults to enjoy as well. I’m speaking from experience here."
"These are really simple to make, cut up the rounds, fill with apple pie, top with the top round, seal the edges with a fork, bake, then brush with butter and roll in cinnamon sugar."
