This Apple Pie Cookies With Cream Cheese Dough is a true family favorite. My dad used to make this when we were young. The moments where he was in the kitchen, busy cooking for our food is something that I treasure in my life. Unlike some of the families I know, we grew up not having a mom by our side, but our dad made sure that he’ll give us twice the love of a mother.

These cookies are also present during Christmas because why not, right? The combination of apple and cinnamon, plus, the other ingredients creates magic in our palates. I used to help my dad in the kitchen and try his dishes. I recommend these cookies for you all to try.
