Ingredients

Cookies

Streusel Topping

  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
  • 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted, finely chopped pecans

Drizzle

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons milk

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add 3/4 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup pecans and the cinnamon; mix with wooden spoon or hands until well blended. Shape dough into 28 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets. With back of round teaspoon or thumb, make 1-inch indentation in center of each ball.
  • 3
    Spoon generous 1 teaspoon apple pie filling into each dough indentation.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix Streusel Topping ingredients with fork or pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon onto apple pie filling on each cookie, pressing in slightly.
  • 5
    Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 6
    In small bowl, stir Drizzle ingredients until smooth, if necessary, adding 1/2 teaspoon milk at a time until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand about 15 minutes or until set.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    We used apple pie filling instead of fresh apples for this recipe because the pie filling bakes up better inside the cookie. It also lends the perfect sweetness and apple flavor to every bite!
  • tip 2
    The pecan streusel topping adds crunch and texture to these delicious cookies.
  • tip 3
    To toast pecans, spread pecans in ungreased shallow pan. Bake at 350°F 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
  • tip 4
    Use leftover apple pie filling as a topping for ice cream.
  • tip 5
    Store cookies covered in refrigerator or freeze in airtight container up to 1 month.
