Chewy Apple Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Chewy Apple Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

My family has always loved oatmeal raisin cookies, but I wanted to try something new with the classic recipe. We enjoy apples, and I thought the dried fruit would make a good cookie. —Jan Marshall, Fenton, Missouri

"I enjoyed the different taste with the dried apples but I think the next time I bake these I will also add the raisins along with the dried apples for a little more flavor."

"Pretty darn good. Chewy and soft. I used fresh apples instead of dry and they were delicious. Not sure they'll be as good tomorrow, but they were sure good straight from the oven!"

"The cookie was the softest and chewiest I have ever made. My family loved the apple, but I am a chocoholic, so I made the recipe again but with chocolate chunks and pecans. It was equally amazing."

"Next time I'd like to substitute the apple for dried cranberries and add macadamia. First oatmeal cookie that I baked that I really really like."

"I love this recipe, I add a pinch of nutmeg to it no matter what I add. When I use the apples, I sprinkle apple cinnamon on it before I add it to the mixture. My family likes it best with dried cranberries and white chocolate chips."

"This is one of my favorite cookie recipes! Wonderful flavor............I do usually use raisins instead of apples, but both are equally delicious. However, I will note that I have always had to use more flour than the recipe states: I use 2 cups whereas the recipe calls for 1-1/2 cups. Also, I generally double the amount of dried fruit......just my preference! Have also used quick cooking oats for variation, or left out cinnamon and fruit and stirred in chocolate chips.........this recipe (for me, adding extra flour) is a great basic to have on hand."

"These cookies are delicious! I used fresh apples (pink ladies) instead of dried apples and they turned out great! They cooked long enough that the apples were soft by the time they cooled and we ate them. I also added a bit of nutmeg like others suggested. Will definitely make again! YUM!!"

"I used butter flavored crisco rather than butter since I was sharing the cookies with someone who is restricted in their dairy consumption and they turned out great. I did need to cook them a few minutes longer than the recipe indicated."
