what you'll need

apple filling

  • 6 Granny Smith apples peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour

cookie topping

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cinnamon and sugar for dusting
  • 6 individual greased baking dishes/ramekins
  • vanilla ice cream

let's do it

apple filling

  • Combine apple slices, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice together in bowl and stir until ingredients are evenly mixed.
  • Heat butter in medium pan over medium-high heat then add apple mixture and heat until bubbly. Reduce heat and simmer 5-6 minutes until apples begin to soften. Sprinkle flour evenly over apples and cook until sauce thickens. NOTE: When working with fresh fruit, the amount of thickener you need depends on how ripe the fruit is. If you’re using super sweet, ripe fruit, increase the flour by 1 or 2 Tbsp.
  • Remove from heat; set aside

cookie topping

  • Cream butter and sugar together in separate mixing bowl then stir in the egg and vanilla.
  • Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in separate bowl.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients to form smooth dough.
  • Form golf ball size dough balls and flatten to size of baking dish, set aside.


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Fill baking dishes 2/3 full with apple mixture then lace flattened cookie dough on top of each dish to form "pie" crust. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over cookie dough.
  • Place ramekins on baking sheet and bake 12-15 minutes or until cookie top is lightly golden brown and set.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
