The best part about these adorable little apples is that you don't need to be Martha Stewart to make them. Just grab a package of cookie dough, some food coloring, candy and pretzels, and you've got adorable apple look-alike treats.
Seriously, it's that easy. Just pour the cookie mix, softened butter and egg into a bowl. Use those muscular arms you've been shaping in barre, and stir it up until a soft dough forms.
Then you play. Squirt as much of the red food dye as you like to get a nice red color. Then you mix it all up. After that, you roll the dough into small, little, itty-bitty pieces. Now, this next part is totally optional, but I decided to add some sparkle to these apples by dipping the small dough balls into red sprinkles. You can skip it, but I think it adds a fun pizzazz.
After they glitter, you plop them into a mini muffin pan, and bake away! Now, don't get discouraged if they sink in the middle a little — that can totally be fixed.
If yours sink, simply mix up a foolproof buttercream, add some red food dye and sprinkles and then stick a bit into the "sinking" part of the cookie. You'll never notice.
Once you're done with that, you add a little pretzel stem to the middle and cut some leaf shapes from the Sour Patch gummies. And then, voilà.
You have apples that'll totally make you and your kid the teacher's pet.
