Good evening everyone!
If you’re looking for an easy recipe which requires minimal ingredients and effort, then this one is for you. I used a recipe from Betty Crocker and was very happy with the outcome; these cookies are soft and sweet, with a touch of cinnamon. The original recipe uses nutmeg, but I replaced it with cinnamon, so feel free to use whichever you prefer.
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened (I used margarine)
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg (I used cinnamon)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon soda
- 1 peeled and chopped apple
The whole baking process, from start to finish, will take you no longer than 25 minutes. First beat your sugar and butter or margarine and then add in your egg. Once it’s all mixed, start adding in your dry ingredients and finish off by folding in your apple. I used one medium green apple, which I peeled before chopping, and used a silicone spatula to fold the pieces into the batter. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit/190 degrees Celsius and use a tablespoon or ice-cream scooper to help you drop the dough onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Don’t forget to leave some space between your cookies, as they will spread out, and then bake for 8-10 minutes. That is all!
I baked this as a late evening snack with tea, so excuse the poor lightning in the photos, but I hope the above photo gives you an idea of how much the cookies spread. My parents highly enjoyed these lovely cookies, so I’ll definitely be saving this recipe for future use. You can even experiment by adding some raisins or walnuts, for example. Let me know if you try them out! 🙂
Until next time!
