Oat, apple and cinnamon cookies December 3, 2009

Posted by Helen in cookies.

I get a bit bored with the ubiquitous chocolate chip cookie and I find oatmeal raisin cookies overly sweet, so I loved these spicy, apple-y cookies. They didn’t last long, and I think I’ll have to double this Delicious magazine recipe next time!










100g unsalted butter, softened
70g granulated sugar
50g light muscovado sugar
1 large egg
140g plain flour
50g porridge oats
1 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g dried, ready-to-eat apples, roughly chopped
Icing sugar for dusting (I skipped this)

Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Lightly grease 2-3 nonstick baking sheets. Put the butter and sugars into a large bowl and cream together using an electric hand whisk until pale, light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the egg until mixed together.

In a small bowl, mix the flour, oats, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and a good pinch of salt. Lightly fold this into the butter and egg mixture, along with the dried apples, until just combined into a dough.

Put tablespoonfuls of the cookie dough onto the baking sheets, spaced apart to allow for some spreading. Bake for 12 minutes, then remove from the oven. Leave on the baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar and eat immediately. Or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
