Apple Cookie Recipe

Lately, I have been on a cooking kick. Muffins, Halloween pretzel sticks and now Apple Cookies. Today, was actually the second time in a week that I have whipped up a batch of these. Thankfully, Jennifer, from Jent's Front Porch, posted a picture of these on Instagram or I would have never even known about them!

I love this recipe because it doesn't take much time and the cookies freeze well. This is important for me because with only two people in our house there is no need to have a ton of cookies around. The other reason why I like these cookies is they remind me of my mom's raisin cookies, which I don't hardly make because the boy dosen't like raisins. I think Apple Cookies are going to make a great substitute.

Apple Cookies


2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/3 c. light brown sugar, packed
3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg
1 c. chopped apple (I actually think the recip needs a little bit more apple, so I like a 1 1/4 c. of apples. We also like it better when the apples are peeled).
1/4 c. apple cider

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and brown sugar. Then add egg. In separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Give this a quick mix. Slowly add the dry mixture to the brown sugar mixture, and mix until combined. Add cider and apples, and mix gently.

Drop LARGE spoonfuls of mixture onto a greased cookie sheet. I actually love using my Pampered Chef Large Cookie Scoop. (If you don't have one of these scoops they are a must for baking!) I usually can only fit eight cookies on a sheet.

Bake for 18-22 minutes. These cookies will be dark because of the brown sugar. Don't be scared.

This recipe gives me about 16 give or take each time I make them. If you are looking for an even sweeter treat check out the icing/drizzle mixture that Jent's Front Porch recommends.
