These Apple Cookies are so delicious! Apple Cookies are drop cookies, the easiest cookie you can make! The inside is soft and chewy and the apples and nuts give them a nice, crispy crunch!
Happy National Cookie Day!
These wonderful apple cookies have lots of chunks of apples and nuts in them!
The month between Thanksgiving and Christmas is about the only time of year that I feel like I have to bake cookies. I may make a few batches of chocolate chipes for the boys, throughout the year, but rarely.
We just don’t need the calories, and who doesn’t think that cookies must be made with real butter? Not me. It’s a necessity, for me! Maybe not the best for the waistline, though.
I make so many cookies that are complicated, Hildabrotchen, Ischeler’s Tortelettes, so it is nice to have a few seasonal drop cookies to round out the cookie plates that I give to family and friends!
These apple cookies are a perfect, seasonal cookie that are not a ton of work! Of course, they are not as cute as these Santa Claus cookies, but a whole lot easier!
- Measure dry ingredients and mix together in a separate bowl.
- Dice apples into desired sized pieces. Chop nuts.
- Cream butter, until light and fluffy.
- Add sugar and cream together.
- Add egg and mix.
- Incorporate dry ingredients just until combined. Don’t over mix.
Mix in chopped nuts and apples by hand. Place teaspoon sized chunks on cookie sheet about 2″ apart. Bake 350°F for about 10-12 minutes.
