  • Place onto the prepared baking sheet and spray the tops with cooking spray.

Notes

If you make the full batch of cookies, you’ll end up with 78 cookies and a ton of extra pie crust from the scraps. I love using the scraps to make my pie crust cookies or bake the scraps plain and use them as a dipper for chicken pot pie, soup, etc. You can also check out this great article: https://www.foodandwine.com/cooking-techniques/baking/10-ways-use-leftover-pie-dough
If you don’t want to make 78 cookies (each box of pie crust makes 14 cookies), use the leftover apple pie filling for stirring into oats, yogurt, as an ice cream topping, in a parfait, on top of cake, bake it into an actual pie, etc. You can also check out this article: https://www.pillsbury.com/everyday-eats/how-to-use-apple-pie-filling You’ll want to half the cream cheese icing as well.
