Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the cookie base.
Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.
And after the dough has been chilling for about 20 minutes, preheat your oven to 350.
Next, make the apple pie filling.
To make the apple pie filling, chop the apples into tiny pieces, and then add them, along with the cinnamon, to a small pan lightly coated with cooking spray (or a teaspoon of oil).
Saute the apples over medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
Then transfer the apples to a small bowl to cool.
Once the apples have reached room temperature, stir in the maple syrup.
Form about 16 balls with the cookie dough, and use your thumb to gently make an imprint.
Spoon some apple filling into each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden.
