Fall comes, and I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies as much as the next person. But forget about them for a minute.....
Do you like oatmeal cookies? Well, the addition of chopped, spiced apple, cinnamon chips, and chopped nuts will literally take them over the top. They scream, "It's Fall!" These were some of the best oatmeal cookies I've ever made. Loved them! Give them a try--you'll be glad you did.
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies
makes about 3 dozen
1 medium apple, peeled, cored and chopped (I used Gala)
2 T. butter
3 T. brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
3/4 c. butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 t. vanilla
2 t. cinnamon
2 c. flour
2 t. cornstarch
1 t. baking soda
2 1/2 c. quick oats
1/2 c. cinnamon chips (found at Walmart)
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt 2 T. butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped apple, 3 T. brown sugar, 1 t. cinnamon and 1/4 t. nutmeg. Stir and cook until apples are slightly softened and syrup has thickened. Set aside.
Cream butter and brown sugar together until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and egg and mix until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cinnamon, flour, cornstarch and baking soda until combined. All at once, add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir til combined. Stir in the oats, cinnamon chips and chopped walnuts just until combined. Fold in the apples, including the syrup.
Using a cookie scoop, place balls of dough 2-inches apart on a baking sheet with a silicone liner. Bake 10 minutes. Remove cookies to a cooling rack. See how long they last at your house!
