Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

     Hello!  It's Recipe Tuesday and today's recipe for apple cinnamon oatmeal cookies comes from my FAVORITE cooking blog:  Sweet Pea's Kitchen
     These cookies were easy to make and even easier to eat!  They are loaded with apples, oatmeal and walnuts and incredibly moist.  I took a some into school with me and had quite a few requests for the recipe!  Christina did make an apple cider glaze to top off her cookies but I chose to leave them plain.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 1 medium apple, cored peeled, diced small
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
For Apple Cider Glaze
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider
1. Preheat oven to 350.  In large bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg; set aside.

2. In bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.  Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined, about 30 seconds.  Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds.  Fold in apples and walnuts with a rubber spatula.

3.  Drop by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.  Bake 10-13 minutes or until the bottoms are light golden color.

4. Transfer cooked cookies to a wire rack and cool completely.

5. To make the apple cider glaze: in small bowl combine confectioners' sugar and apple cider.  Drizzle over cookies.
