Apple and Oatmeal Cookies!!

These are one of my all time favorite cookies. I do enjoy a good oatmeal raisin cookie and I love apples so when I came across this recipe I was surprised I hadn't thought of it before!! 

They come courtesy of a book that you may have heard of before called Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days?? This is the book that sorted started it all. I had a few baking books like 100 Magnificent Muffins and Scones and The Whoopie Pie Cookbook, before I bought Cake Days, but it’s the later that took my baking to another level!

Having made these yesterday for an after dinner treat at a friends I realized even though I have made them a few times it was really before my blog was in existence! So, here you go! Enjoy!!

Apple & Oatmeal Cookeis:

135g softened butter
80g caster sugar
80g soft light brown sugar
1 egg
½ tsp vanilla essence
190g plain flour
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 granny smith apples (or apple of your choice)
60g rolled oats

Preheat the oven to 170C/325F. Cream together softened butter with both sugars (either a handheld of freestanding mixer will work here). Add egg and vanilla essence and mix thoroughly. Sift together plain flour, salt, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture in two batches.
Peel and finely grate apples and squeeze all of the liquid out of them, discarding the liquid. I just coarsely grated my apples and you do get apple strips in the cookie, but I’m okay with that! Add rolled oats and 60g of the grated apples to the cookie dough and stir by hand. Break off pieces of the dough (size about 2 tbsp), roll into a ball and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment (leave 3inches between each cookie as they will spread while baking).
Place into the oven and bake for 15-20 min or until the cookies are a light golden brown. Leave to cool and set for about 10 min before transferring them to a wire rack. Makes 10-12 cookies!
