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!
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.
