I’m not sure what happened to all of my cookies. These lasted all of two hours before they vanished.
I restrained myself from eating the dough, which was no easy feat.
And they definitely came out of the oven…
They made it to the cooling rack. But then?
One by one, they disappeared!
Huh, I guess I’ll just have to make more.
Apple Oatmeal Cookies
Makes approximately 36 cookies
3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup applesauce
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups oatmeal (this is the amount before blending), blended
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 to 2 large apples, chopped
Preheat oven to 375F
Start by making oat flour. Place 2 1/2 cups of oatmeal into a blender or food processor. Pulse on low until the oats resemble gravely sand.
Cream butter, applesauce and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla.
Add flour, oats, baking powder and baking soda and mix. Add the apples and gently combine.
Drop onto a cookie sheet or stoneware pan, and bake 15 to 20 minutes, just until golden brown.
These cookies are perfect on their own, but you can add vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an extra decadent dessert.
