Fresh Apple Cookies

Chunky, appley, oaty deliciousness. Bet you could get away with calling a couple of these breakfast! The tart apple offsets the sweet glaze while the oats lend that familiar oatmeal-like flavor.


  • 1 cup plain flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon apple pie spice

  • ½ cup softened butter

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 medium tart apple, peeled, cored and chopped

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Mix flour, salt, baking soda, oats and spices in a bowl and set aside.

  3. Beat together butter and sugar until fluffy. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and stir until well blended. Stir in chopped apples. Add walnuts if desired. 

  4. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheet. Bake 9–12 minutes. 

  5. Whisk the last three ingredients —powdered sugar, vanilla and milk —together to make a glaze and drizzle over cooled cookies.
