Cookie base

  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup old fashion oats
  • 1 & ½ cup AP flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Apple pie filling

  • 2 medium apple peeled and sliced thinly
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 & ½ tablespoon corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • teaspoon ginger
  • pinch of allspice
  • pinch of nutmeg


Make the apple pie filling

  • In a large bowl, mix the apples and lemon together to keep them from darkening. Set aside.
  • In a medium or large saucepan, add in the water, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, corn starch, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg, and whisk to combine. Bring to a bowl on medium heat and cook for 1-2 minutes or until it thickens a little bit.
  • Mix in the sliced apples and sitr to coat them in the liquid mixture. Cover with a lid and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring from time to time. The apple should be soft. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Make the cookie base

  • Preheat the oven to 350F then line a baking sheet with parchement paper and set it aside.
  • In a stand mixer bowl, cream the butter, and brown sugar together until smooth. Add in the egg, molasses, and vanilla and mix again to combine.
  • Mix in the oats, flour, cinnamon, corn starch, baking powder, and salt just until the dry mixture disappears. Save about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough aside.
  • Using a large cookie scooper, scoop out 7 equally sized cookie dough balls, place them on the prepared baking sheet and gently press down with the back of a ¼ cup measuring cup. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes. Once the cookies come out, press the center with a measuring cup again in case you lost that well in the center.
  • In a small parchement lined baking sheet crumble the 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and bake in the oven for 6 minutes. Pull out the cookie dough, let it cool down for a few minutes then crumble it some more and bake again for 2 minutes to get it extra crunchy.

Assemble the cookies

  • Top each cookie with the apple pie filling then top it with the oat cookie crumbs and enjoy!
