Apple Snickerdoodle Cookies

Have you ever tried apple snickerdoodles? If not, you should.They are really good!! ???? It’s not a strong apple flavor, just a hint. Plus the apples keep these cookies super moist and tasty! Here’s how I made mine:

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/3cup plus 1 tablespoon white granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cup all-purpose flour
1.5 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. table salt
Dash ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 fresh, small apple, shredded
Cinnamon sugar to roll in-
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
3 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in small bowl. Mix to combine. Grate apple and squeeze to remove all excess liquid. My gala had a LOT! In mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars. Mix until sugars are lightened and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, and mix to combine. Add flour mixture and mix only until combined. Fold in apples. Combine white sugar and cinnamon to roll cookies on. Make sure you coat your cookies well, it’s an important part in making snickerdoodles. Bake until lightly browned on edges, just barely! Mine took about 8 minutes

Also, we are avid dunkers in our house. We rarely eat cookies without dunking in milk. My favorite “cups” to use are wide mouth Mason jars. It’s so frustrating when the opening is too narrow and you can’t properly dip the cookie!! Come on! Although I generally eat healthy, there’s always room for cookies in my life ♥️♥️. .
