If you love apple pie or have leftover pie crust, you are going to want to make these easy pie crust leaf cookies with apple pie dip!

When I think of fall, I think of going apple picking, helping my mom make an apple pie and then going outside to play in a big pile of leaves while the pie bakes in the oven. This recipe makes me so nostalgic for a simple and cozy fall. I was so honored when the ladies from the Handcrafted Society asked me to join them for this month’s blog hop, all about leaves. I knew exactly what I wanted to do! I think you all will love this recipe as much as I do!

If you are coming from Diane at South House Designs, thank you so much for popping over! I hope you will stay awhile! How pretty was her modge podge decor?

Now scroll on down for my easy pie crust leaf cookies with apple pie dip recipe.

Easy pie crust leaf cookies with apple pie dip

Refrigerated pie crust is cut out into leaf shapes and basted with cinnamon and sugar to make a simple yet sweet cookie. Apples, more cinnamon and sugar are cooked until tender in the crock pot to not only make your house smell amazing, but it makes a great dip for your cookies! You can use any dip you like, I also like to do a pumpkin dip (recipe coming soon!) But this apple pie dip is my favorite!

Ingredients: For the apple pie dip

  • 6 medium apples, peeled and cored. (I used pink lady but honeycrisp or granny smith work well too!)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • slab of butter

For the leaf cookies

  • Refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp water or milk
  • pinch of cinnamon and sugar


1.) In a crockpot, add the butter, chopped apples, sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg and stir well.

2.) Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours. 3.) While the apples are cooking, start to prepare the pie crust cookies. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 4.) On a lightly floured surface or on parchment paper, roll out the dough. 5.) Using some cookie cutters or a butter knife, cut out your desired leaf shapes and place on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.

6.) Prepare an egg wash by whisking together 1 egg and 1 Tbsp of water or milk. Sprinkle in some cinnamon and sugar.

7.) Using a basting or pastry brush, lightly brush the egg wash mixture onto each cut out cookie.

    This looks so good Nicole. Your post brought back such great memories of my mom baking in the kitchen. She would give us the dough that was left over and we would make cinnamon rolls out of it. I will definitely try this recipe in the next few weeks.

    My Mom used to bake the left over pieces of pie crust dough whenever she made a pie. She would dust the bake pieces with cinnamon and sugar and then we would eat them as a sweet treat. I love your idea because it reminds of what my Mom used to do. Plus, your recipe is perfect for fall. Thank you for sharing this on the Home Imagined Link Party.
