Apple Cookie Pizza

We were gifted a bag of apples from our friend Noel's tree. I have made juice, applesauce, and now this cookie pizza, all are very tasty. Any ideas for the rest of the apples?

Cookie Crust:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Cream butter and sugar until combined. Stir in vanilla.
  2. Whisk together dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture until well combined.
  3. Pat dough on a parchment lined 10" x 12" pan, turning up the dough all around to give it an edge.
  4. Spread with apple filling.
Apple Filling:
  • 3 cups apples, cored and sliced. I left the peel on these apples.
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  1. Core and slice apples.
  2. Whisk together sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Mix it with the apples.
Crumble Topping:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  1. Stir together flour, oats, and brown sugar.
  2. Drizzle butter over mixture and stir until crumbly.
  3. Sprinkle over apple mixture and bake in a 350ยบ oven for 35 minutes until golden in color. Serve warm, plain or with ice cream. 



  1. Maybe strudel or apple crisp! We make a crisp using oats that has a nice combination of crisp topping with nice
    apple filling. Apple salad, or slaw with apples. We have two apple trees in our back yard and we make sauce
    as you did, but you can dry them or even make apple leather if you have more than you want for now. Or just sliced
    with peanut butter.... or just straight apples. Wonderfully yummy just biting into them....

  2. This pizza looks delicious! thanks for the recipe. What to do with the other apples...? Well, I once made apple/strawberry jam, which was good.
    Oh, and when I have lots of apples and cann't eat them at once, you could chop them, then freeze them, so when you want to make more apple crisps etc, you have them almost ready for use.

  3. Apple butter! mmmmm ....

  4. I dehydrate apple rings. then in winter I cut them up with scissors and they are awesome in porridge.

  5. When I have too many apples, I make apple pie filling and can it in quart jars. One quart makes one apple pie. Recipe is: 20 cups diced apples (peeled), 3/4 cup water, 5 tbsp. Minute tapioca, 4 cups white sugar (or to taste). Mix together. Put into jars (leaving 1 inch from top. Process in canner for 20 minutes. We love this and often use this for apple crisp as well.

    1. So you don't pre-cook this before you put it in the jars? And are you using a water bath canner or pressure cooker? Also, how many quarts does your recipe make?

    2. I use a water bath canner. This makes about 5 quarts. I have had these jars sit on the shelf for over a year and they are still great.

  6. Oh pies,, - definitely pies. With ice cream or cheese!!

  8. Sorry to be a bit late with the comment. Favorite way to use apples at our house is to poach them in a very light syrup and eat them as fruit. I peel and quarter them, then cook them from 10 to 20 minutes or so depending on the variety of apple. I also can the quartered fruit, again in a very light syrup of 1 cup sugar to 6 cups of water. My Grandmother used to cook up red delicious this way for my Granddad, and they are one of my husband's favorite fruits. Now they are a special treat for my Grandson, who asked for some of Grandma's canned apples for his Christmas gift!

  9. Thank you all for sharing your great ideas/recipes!


  10. when I made a homemade pizza and had some leftover dough I made an apple pizza pie. I layered the crust with thinly sliced apples and then sprinkled with cinnamon,flour and sugar and dotted with a small amount of butter. I baked it until the apples were tender and drizzled it with a thin frosting of confectioners sugar and cream. It was yummy and the kids really loved it. Sorry no exact amounts, I just made it up to use the extra dough and some apples I had on hand.
