    I dunno, maybe it's just because I make pie frequently and have become fairly efficient at it, but these "cookies" seem like a lot of expense & fussing around for not much product.

      As a person with a slight dexterity handicap from an injury, I'm looking forward to making miniature pie-looking

      cookies. The crossed strips are less likely to be mis-formed with an easy prep, as the same wonderful apple filling is looked forward to.
