Apple Pie Cookies

I’ve baked with apple in pies, tarts, muffins, and other bready baked goods.  Until I found this recipe, I hadn’t thought of using apple in cookies! I had no idea how it would turn out, since the apple shreds were definitely visible in the cookies, but I thought I’d give it a try.   Even if they didn’t taste delicious, they would more than likely at least make my house smell good while they were baking. 🙂

The apple pie cookies that I decided to try actually comes from a local news website, you can find it here. (I did not put walnuts in mine because I didn’t have walnuts on hand, and I’m really a fan of nuts in baked goods.)

Aside from grating the apple, they were not difficult to make at all.  They turned out to be interesting, but I’m not sure if I liked them or not.  They were very soft and chewy….almost too much.  The fact that they were so soft makes me think that maybe I undercooked them?  Although I don’t think I did because I left them in longer than suggested and it didn’t really seem to help.  And it does tell you to bake them on parchment paper, so it seems like they are supposed to be a bit sticky? Hmm.

They tasted good though!  Once you forget about the fact that you had to pretty much peel them off of the parchment paper after they cooled, they did have a yummy apple, cinnamon and sugar flavor.  Maybe I should have squeezed some of the juice out of the apple shreds to keep them from being so soft and sticky?

Ease: A-, aside from shredding the apples, not bad at all.
Taste: B+,  I’m not really sure what went wrong with the texture, but the flavor was still pretty good!

Would I make them again?  Maybe if I figured out what went wrong and made them sticky and soft, otherwise probably not.

  1. Hmm recipe seems solid. Might add 1/4 cup more flour. Also, add 1/2 t of baking powder to the mix. Sounds like the apples were very juicy and could have caused the stickiness? Sounds good though….

    • Yeah, maybe adding more flour would have helped. I’m thinking maybe I should have squeezed out the apples so that they were less juicy and that might have also helped.

  2. That recipe looks fairly legit – I will say that I made apple cookies last year and I do remember them being extra soft and gooey. I would guess that all the moisture with the apple has something to do with that? I hope they still tasted good, though! Sometimes that’s all I really care about with cookies 🙂

    • They did still taste good! They were just kind of annoying to eat because they were soft and sticky 🙂 I’m thinking it was the moisture and sugar in the apple that made them sticky and extra soft.
