Apple Cider Oatmeal Cookies

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"I adapted an old oatmeal raisin cookie recipe I had to match a more autumnal feel, and it turned out really good. The apples came through nicely and the cookie itself is light, soft, and nicely crumbly."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Beat white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, butter, shortening, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg together in a bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth; stir in oats, apples, and flour until dough is evenly combined. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons, about 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned, 9 to 11 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool, 3 to 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For added spice add a dash of apple pie spice, and make sure to not peel the apples.
  • Quick-cooking oats can be used in place of old-fashioned oats.
  • I use the mandolin to thinly slice the apples and then cut them into pieces.
