Stacey shares an easy and delicious recipe for apple pie cookies recipe. She also turns them into apple pie a la mode ice cream sandwiches.
Servings 4


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup green apple peeled, and grated, or finely chopped.
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 350. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • With a hand mixer cream the sugar and butter together for about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the prepared egg, vanilla, and prepared apple.
  • In a separate bowl sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  • Combine the dry mixture with the wet mixture and just blend.
  • Scoop into heaping tablespoons full and roll into balls.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger in a small bowl.
  • Roll each ball in the sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  • Place on the parchment-covered baking sheet about 2" apart. Bake at 350 degrees 12-15 minutes.
  • Do not over-bake. You want them to be a little under for making ice cream sandwiches.
  • They will be a little soft when they are removed from the oven but they will harden. Remove to a rack to cool. The photo makes them look larger than they are in reality. They are about 2" in diameter.

To Make Ice Cream Sandwiches

  • 1/2 gallon of vanilla bean ice cream sprinkles of your choosing (I bought these and these)
    Freeze the apple pie cookies. Once frozen, then add a scoop of ice cream and press down to flatten. If you want to add sprinkles or other toppings, you can roll the sandwiches into the sprinkles. You could also use mini chocolate chips or mini m&ms.
