apple cinnamon cookies!

Nothing beats cooked apples. They are the most amazing texture EVER! I love apple pies, apple crisps, apple tarts, you name it, but one thing I have never tried before is an apple cookie. I had one granny smith apple laying around at the house and decided today would be a good day to mess around with it. Being as I didn’t feel like making pie crust, and that I just had apple crisps recently, I gave apple cookies a shot, and I am sure glad that I did! These cookies are very cakey and light and the chunks of apple give it a nice variance in texture. I topped them with a vanilla cinnamon glaze that I feel really adds something nice to the cookie. I love these cookies and will definitely be making them again sometime soon!

  • 1/4 cup shortening

Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream together shortening, sugar and egg. Add half of your dry ingredients, then milk, then the rest of the dry. Stir in oats, raisins and apples.

Scoop onto baking sheet and bake for 10-12 mins.

In the meantime, combine all glaze ingredients and mix until smooth.

Once cookies are on a wire rack, drizzle glaze on top.
