Perhaps the most iconic dessert in the United States is the apple pie. What's Cooking America suggests that the first recipe for apple pie, albeit slightly different from the one we know today, appeared in the 1300s. When sugar was more accessible in the coming centuries, the apple pie recipe began to take shape.
So how do you put a twist on a recipe that's been around for hundreds of years? It certainly poses a challenge for bakers who are trying to break the mold, but their creative endeavors have resulted in some superb sweet treats. Check out a recipe for apple pie cookies below.
