An Apple a Day - McIntosh-Oatmeal Cookies

Mmmmm! Welcome to day 5 of
I had to take Sunday off as a rest day and now I'm back with a new recipe! I think this brings my apple count down to 5 apples. Seeing I had 9 pounds of apples when I started, I am making pretty good progress using up my freshly picked apples. This new recipe comes from my Mom's Best Recipe Cookbook. Enjoy!
McIntosh-Oatmeal Cookies (From my Mom's Best Recipes Cookbook)
1 C unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 C sugar
1 1/2 C flour
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla
2 large eggs
2 medium McIntosh apples, peeled, cored, and diced (about 2 C) (I used Stayman Winesap because I didn't pick any McIntosh apples. Sorry, Mom!)
3 C oatmeal
1 C raisins
3/4 C walnuts, chopped

In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, vanilla, and eggs; beat until just blended, occasionally scarping bowl with spatula. Stir in apples, oats, raisins, and walnuts.

Drop dough by level 1/4 C, about 3 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 350 degrees until golden, 20 to 25 minutes, rotating cookie sheets between upper and lower oven racks halfway through. With wide spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
Bake well and prosper!

  4. this is beautiful!... i could eat a whole batch:) thank you for sharing this.

  5. I adore oatmeal cookies and never would have thought to put diced apples in them. They must be amazing.

  6. i had my doubts with these as i'm not a huge oatmeal cookie guy... BUT whoa. game changer. these were so tasty!

  7. How many cookies will this make?

  8. Anonymous - it depends how big you make them, but I would say it makes about 16.

  9. I am looking for a chewy oatmeal raisin apple cookie...Are these chewy?

  10. These are slightly chewy. Easiest way to guarantee a chewy cookie is by taking the cookies out of the oven a little bit before they look done.
