There is nothing better than grandma’s old fashioned apple cookies baking in the oven. These soft and delicious cookies have the perfect amount of apples and cinnamon to make a delicious afternoon treat. They are like having a piece of apple pie without the mess!
These apple pie cookies can be made with fresh apples or the canned variety so really whatever you have on hand. All of the other ingredients should be in your pantry so they can be made at the drop of a hat.
How to Make Apple Cookies
½ can apple filling, chopped
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 375.
Line baking sheets with silicon mats.
In an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment blend together all ingredients.
Refrigerate dough for at least 3 hours.
Drop by rounded teaspoons about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 minutes until lightly brown.
Simply dust these cookies with powdered sugar or they are perfect just out of the oven. My husband enjoys these cookies warm and baked for a little bit longer so they are a deep golden brown. I love the texture of a soft and chewy cookie so I enjoy them with the recipe made as-is.
