Easy pie crust leaf cookies with apple pie dip

Easy pie crust leaf cookies with apple pie dip

This post contains affiliate links

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

Directions:

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.

Easy crock pot walking tacos

Easy crock pot walking tacos

These crock pot walking tacos are an easy weeknight dinner for the family or a crowd! Serve them for Cinco de Mayo or Taco Tuesday!

One of my son’s favorite lunches to get at school is Walking Tacos. If you haven’t heard of them, it’s basically all of the taco fixings served on top of Frito’s or Doritos. We do Taco Tuesday every week in our house and I decided to do the walking tacos but in a crock pot for our family of 4. Scroll down for my recipe and be sure to pin for future!

Easy Crock Pot Walking Tacos

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag Frito’s corn chips (you can also use Doritos)
  • 1 package of ground turkey or beef
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1 yellow pepper diced
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 2 tbsp of garlic minced
  • 1 can of Rotel tomatoes and diced chilies
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • shredded lettuce
  • sour cream
  • shredded cheese
  • guacamole (optional)

Easy crockpot walking tacos

Directions:

1.) Start by spraying the bottom of the slow cooker with nonstick spray or olive oil.

2.) Pour the fritos on the bottom of the crockpot.

3.) Add the meat, onions, peppers, garlic, Rotel, and taco seasoning.

4.) Stir well and cook on low for 1-2 hours.

5.) When ready to serve scoop in a bowl and top with shredded lettuce, sour cream, cheese and guac.

6.) If you wish, top with more fritos for some extra crunch.

Note – putting the fritos in the crock pot will cause them to get a little soft. If you don’t like the texture, add all ingredients except the fritos into the crock pot. Then when getting ready to serve, layer your bowl with a layer of chips first, then add the taco fixings from the crock pot!

Enjoy!!!

Serve with my spicy pineapple ranch water or one of these margaritas 🙂

Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Crockpot chicken cacciatore

If you’re looking for an easy, warm comfort meal, this is it! I hadn’t made this crockpot chicken cacciatore in a long time and I just made it for dinner the other night and I thought, “Why is this not on the rotation?” Chicken in a delicious rich sauce of tomatoes and peppers is packed with flavor and the perfect dinner the whole family will love! Scroll down for my recipe.

Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Ingredients:

  • oilve oil
  • 1 pack of boneless chicken thighs (I chose skinless as well but you do you)
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 large red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper sliced
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 packet of Italian seasoning
  • fresh Basil, chopped

Directions:

1.) Drizzle some olive oil in the bottom of the crockpot.

2.) Add the chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3.) Add the garlic, tomatoes, peppers, onions and pack of Italian dressing seasoning.

4.) Stir combining all ingredients so that it coats the chicken.

5.) Allow to cook on high for 4 hours.

This is great served over pasta or with some bread to sop up all the juice. If you’re trying to watch your carbs I love it over cauilflower rice, spaghetti squash or over green beans.
