1 cup butter, unsalted and softened
1 tbsp white granulated sugar
6 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 can apple pie filling
For topping:
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350*
In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter with the cream cheese, beat until smooth
Add the vanilla, flour, 1 tbsp sugar and the 2 tsp cinnamon. Mix until dough forms
Lightly flour a flat surface, place dough in the center and roll it out until it is ¼ inch thick
Using a round, 3 inch biscuit cutter, cut out 40 circles of the dough
Put the pie filling into a bowl and mash it so you have no more large chunks of apples
Place a small spoonful of dough in the center of 15 circles
Cover with another cut circle of pie dough
Crimp the edges of each combined circle with the tines of a fork
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.
Mix the garnish and sprinkle onto each cookie
