Ingredients and Their Significance:

  1. All-Purpose Flour: Gold Medal’s all-purpose flour forms the base of our cookie dough, providing structure and texture to the final product.
  2. Land O’ Lakes Light Butter: Infused with canola oil, this light butter contributes to the richness of the dough while keeping the calorie count in check.
  3. Unsweetened Applesauce: Adding moisture and natural sweetness, unsweetened applesauce serves as a healthier alternative to traditional fats and sugars.
  4. White Sugar Substitute: Lakanto Monkfruit Classic Sweetener replaces conventional sugar, reducing the overall calorie content without sacrificing sweetness.
  5. Ground Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Allspice: These warm spices elevate the flavor profile of the apple filling, imparting a cozy and aromatic essence reminiscent of classic apple pie.
  6. No-Sugar-Added Apple Pie Filling: Whether using a homemade version or a store-bought alternative like Zero Point or Wilderness, opting for no-sugar-added apple pie filling ensures a diabetic-friendly and WW-compliant dessert.
  7. Smucker’s Sugar-Free Caramel Sundae Sauce (Optional): For an extra touch of indulgence, drizzle with sugar-free caramel sauce, adding a decadent finish to each mini pie.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius), ensuring it reaches the optimal temperature for baking.
  2. In a spacious mixing bowl, combine the Land O’ Lakes light butter, unsweetened applesauce, and Lakanto Monkfruit Classic Sweetener. Cream the ingredients together until smooth and well incorporated.
  3. Incorporate the ground cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, all-purpose flour, and a pinch of salt into the wet mixture, stirring until a cohesive dough forms. Exercise caution not to overmix, as this may result in a dense texture.
  4. Transfer the no-sugar-added apple pie filling into a separate bowl. Using a knife, finely chop the apple slices to achieve smaller pieces, enhancing the distribution within each mini pie.
  5. Integrate the chopped apple mixture with the apple pie filling, ensuring an even dispersion of spices and flavors throughout.
  6. Prepare a 24-cup mini muffin tin by lightly greasing it with non-stick cooking spray, ensuring easy release post-baking.
  7. Using a spoon, portion out the dough into each muffin cup, gently pressing down the center to create a well for the filling.
  8. Spoon a generous dollop of the prepared apple filling into the center of each mini pie, allowing it to nestle snugly within the dough.
  9. Place the filled muffin tin into the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the mini pies turn golden brown, indicating their readiness.
  10. Once baked to perfection, remove the mini apple pie cookies from the oven and allow them to cool slightly on a wire rack.
  11. For those seeking an extra layer of indulgence, drizzle each mini pie with Smucker’s sugar-free caramel sundae sauce, imparting a luscious finish to the ensemble.

Storage and Serving Suggestions: 12. Store the cooled WW Mini Apple Pie Cookies in an airtight container, refrigerating them for optimal freshness and longevity.

  1. When ready to serve, reheat the mini pies in an air fryer or microwave for a warm and comforting treat.
  2. Whether enjoyed as a standalone dessert, paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or savored alongside a cup of freshly brewed coffee, these delectable treats are sure to delight your taste buds.
