Toss sliced apples with lemon juice and set aside.
In a saucepan or a pot combine cornstarch, sugar, browned sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and water and stir well and bring to a boil over medium-high heat whisking constantly and let it boil 2 minutes until thick, then stir in apple slices.
Reduce heat to low, cover the pot and let it simmer about 10 minutes; apples should be soft but not mushy (cooking time depend on sort of apples).
Remove apples from heat and leave them covered to soften and cool.
When it’s cooled take out the apples from the sauce and chop into small pieces, set aside.
To make Pie Crust:- in a large mixing bowl place flour, salt and sugar and mix to combine and then using a pastry blender incorporate chilled butter cubes into the flour mixture (the mixture should resemble coarse meal).
Drizzle 2 tablespoons ice water over the mixture and blend, repeat with another 2 tablespoons water and when you squeeze the dough it should holds together (you may have to add more water if the dough crumbles, add 1 tablespoon at a time).
Divide the dough into two equal pieces, flatten and form two disc, wrap each disc with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
Lightly dust working surface with flour, place chilled dough, dust the dough and the rolling pin, too and turn the dough as you rolling to prevent it from sticking and roll it out 1/8-inch thick and repeat the process with the other disc.
Preheat the oven to 170C, line cookie sheet with parchment paper, spray with non-stick spray and set aside.
Spread the caramel sauce onto one pie crust.
Spread chopped apple pie filling over caramel and gently tap the filling with your palms.
Cut second pie crust into 1/2 inch strips and create a lattice top over the filling.
Using round cookie cutter (about 2.5 inch) cut out the cookies and place them onto the baking sheet.
Beat the egg with a fork and brush the top of cookies.
Combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle the cookies generously.
Bake 20-30 minutes (until golden brown).
