There’s nothing quite like the smell of warm apple pie wafting through the house. But let’s be honest, who has the time and energy to make a full apple pie from scratch? That’s where these Apple Pie Oatmeal Cookies come in – they’re chewy, flavorful, and perfect in every way.
First up, let’s talk about the ingredients. You’ll need:
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
– 1 large egg
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
– 1/2 cup dried apples, chopped
To get started, preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate large bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and beat until well combined. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until just combined, then fold in the oats and dried apples.
Now it’s time to form the cookie dough. Use a cookie scoop or spoon to form small balls of dough, then place them onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once your cookies are cooled, it’s time to add the finishing touch – the apple pie topping! For each cookie, start by making a h2 header in your HTML code. Then, add an opening p tag and insert an image of the cookie with an alt tag. Next, list out the ingredients you’ll need for the topping:
– 1/2 cup chopped apples
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– Pinch of ground nutmeg
– Pinch of salt
In a small saucepan, combine the chopped apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Cook over medium heat until the apples are tender and the mixture has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Spoon a small amount of the topping onto each cookie, and voila! You’ve got a delicious treat that’s sure to impress.
In conclusion, these Apple Pie Oatmeal Cookies are the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth without spending hours in the kitchen. They’re easy, flavorful, and have just the right amount of fall spice. Give them a try and let us know what you think!
