What’s better than a delicious dessert exactly Like falling? Seriously, some recipes can rival the likes of our pumpkin cheesecake roll, caramel apple pie, or apple coffee cake. That is, until perfectly spiced apple pies entered the scene. They beg to be served with a pumpkin spice latte in front of a blazing fire with red and orange leaves waving outside in the fresh air. (Or, double up on the applesauce with a glass of homemade, steamed cider.)

These Snickerdoodle-like cookies are chewy in the center and slightly brittle around the edges. The dough is infused with all of the best of autumn’s warm spices, thanks to this super concise apple pie seasoning, and every bite is filled with plenty of sour Granny Smith apples. On top there is a drizzle of thick white icing to take these cookies over. For more fall flavor, add chopped toasted walnuts or pecans.

You can make your own apple pie spice by whisking together 4 parts cinnamon, 1 part each of nutmeg, ginger, and cardamom, and ┬Ż part allspice. Store cookies in a closed container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
