Apple Pie Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) all-purpose flour, plus 2 tbsp (30 mL) for filling and more for dusting
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) ground cinnamon, divided
  • 3/4 tsp (4 mL) salt, divided
  • 1 cup (250 mL) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 4 cups (1 L) peeled, cored, finely diced apples (about 4 apples)
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 egg, beaten

Directions

  1. In food processor, combine 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) flour, sugar, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt. Pulse until blended. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1/4 cup (60 mL) cold water and pulse just until dough forms and holds together when squeezed between fingers. If mixture is too crumbly, pulse in 1 tbsp (15 mL) cold water at a time to moisten. Transfer to lightly floured work surface. Shape into two large discs; wrap in plastic. Chill 30 min.
  2. Meanwhile, in large saucepan, combine apples, 2 tbsp (30 mL) flour, 1/4 cup (60 mL) water, brown sugar, lemon juice, 1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, 8 to 10 min. until apples are tender and juices are thickened. Transfer mixture into bowl; cool slightly, cover and chill.
  3. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. On lightly floured surface, roll out 1 disc of dough to 1/8-in. (3-mm) thickness. Using 2 1/2-in. (6.5-cm) round cutter, cut 16 dough rounds. Place on prepared baking sheets. Cover and chill. Roll out second dough disc into 1/8-in. (3-mm) thick rectangle. Using sharp knife or pizza cutter, slice 96 strips of dough, each 4 in. X 1/4 in. (10 cm X 5 mm) — each cookie requires 6 strips. Remove dough rounds from fridge; brush edges with beaten egg. Top each round with 1 tbsp (15 mL) chilled apple mixture, leaving thin border around edges. Press ends of 3 dough strips along “left” edge of dough round (fold strips away from filling). Press ends of another 3 strips along “bottom” edge of dough round (at 90 degrees from first 3 strips), also fold off filling. To weave lattice, lay middle strip from “left” edge onto filling, then lay “bottom” edge strip farthest on left onto filling. Next, lay top and bottom “left” edge strips onto filling. Continue weaving strips under and over each other to create lattice. Firmly press down strips at edges of cookie. Trim off excess dough. Make 16 cookies.
  4. Brush remaining egg wash over lattice tops. Cover and refrigerate cookies 30 min. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake 25 to 30 min., until cookies are golden brown and filling is bubbling. Cool completely on wire rack.

Imitation Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits Recipe

When Jordon and I were in college, we used to love going to Red Lobster for their lunch special of all you can eat cheddar biscuits, soup, and salad.  This recipe does a good job of replicating the biscuits

Ingredients

For the biscuits:

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 6 ounces grated yellow cheddar cheese (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk

For the garlic butter:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees. Lightly mist a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Make the biscuits: Pulse the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a food processor. Add the shortening and pulse until combined. Add the butter; pulse 4 or 5 times, or until the butter is in pea-size pieces. Add the cheese and pulse 2 or 3 times. Pour in the milk and pulse just until the mixture is moistened and forms a shaggy dough. Turn out onto a clean surface and gently knead until the dough comes together. Do not overwork the dough or the biscuits will be tough.
  3. Drop the dough onto the baking sheet in scant 1/4-cup portions, 2 inches apart, and bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the garlic butter: Melt the butter with the garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley. Brush the biscuits with the garlic butter and serve warm.
