Baby Led Weaning Apple Pie Cookies
I guess it could be debated weather these are cookies or pies, but whatever you call them they are the perfect finger food treat for baby led weaning! What I love most about these cookies is that you can freeze them nicely and re-bake them for a warm and crispy crust! Here’s how:
If you know you will be freezing the cookies, bake them for just a little less than the full time (about 15-18 minutes). Then you will want them to cool completely on a wire rack. If they don’t fully cool, you will get condensation (moisture) when you place in a freezer bag or container. Moisture is the freezers worst enemy.
Moisture = Freezer Burn
So once these baby led weaning apple pie cookies are cooled completely, just pack them up in a freezer container or bag and freeze! When you are ready for ONE cookie or FIVE cookies… Just take them out of the freezer, place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 180ºC (350ºF) for 10-15 minutes until the crust is golden and the filling is heated through.
For baby led weaning, be sure that the filling is cooled before serving to babies and toddlers. I like to do this test for them… You know, by eating a cookie or two, just to make sure… 🙂
