Apple pie cookies

Apple pie cookies
Today I share two baking combinations: the taste of apple pie in thick chewy cookies. Those are my favorite cookies. Their big belly with oatmeal, among other things, gives a nice bite and they are a bit sticky on the inside. These apple pie cookies contain the ingredients of an apple pie and you can taste it. Because the eye also wants to taste, they got a drizzle with white chocolate. With this recipe I baked so many cookies that they didn't fit in a tin and some of them disappeared from the freezer. That's just handy and tasty for another time. I myself like a lot of raisins in apple pie, but not everyone likes that. You can also omit them, but add a little more sugar. Get started quickly because the recipe for apple pie cookies is very easy!

Recipe apple pie cookies

  1. Soak the raisins in hot water for 15 minutes (possibly with a dash of rum), sieve them and dry them well. Peel the apple, grate it and squeeze the moisture out of the grated apple.

  2. Knead all the ingredients together with the raisins and the squeezed apple.

  3. Make balls and roll them in the cinnamon sugar.

  4. Let the dough balls cool in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.

  5. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees in a convection oven or to 195 degrees in an oven with top and bottom heat.

  6. Bake the apple pie cookies at about 15-18 degrees until golden brown and done. Let the cookies cool.

  7. Melt the white chocolate au bain-marie or in short parts in the microwave and stir well. Draw stripes over the cookies with a teaspoon and let the chocolate harden. This goes a little faster in the fridge.

Storing cookies

Normally, you can keep cookies tightly closed for quite a long time. Because these cookies contain apple, it is best to eat them within a few days and keep them in the fridge. Can't do that? Then freeze them for later.

Remove them from the fridge half an hour before serving, then the flavors will come out better.
