  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 c light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 2 cups water
  • Oatmeal Cookie Cups:

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup butter ((room temperature))
  • 1 cup light brown sugar ((packed))
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs ((room temperature))
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • Sugar Glaze:

  • 1 Tbsp water

Apple Pie Filling:

  1. Toss apples and lemon juice in a medium bowl, set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine sugars, cornstarch, and spices. Pour in water. Cook over medium heat until boiling. Cook for 2 minutes. Add apples, bring back to a boil. Simmer until tender (10-15mins). Cool completely.

Oatmeal Cookie Cups:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on med-high until pale and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes).
  3. Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition, and beat on high for 1 minute. Add vanilla.
  4. Turn mixer to low and add flour mixture, mix until combined. Add oats and mix until just combined.
  5. Spray 2 regular sized muffin tins with cooking spray. Using a large cookie scoop (3 Tbsp) scoop dough into muffin tins, press down and push up the sides to create cups. Chill dough in the fridge for an hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake cookie cups for approx. 15mins or until browned and mostly set.
  7. Remove from oven and (if needed) immediately use a small jar or container to press firmly down in the center to create a well. Cool in pans for 15mins, then place on wire rack to cool completely.
