Reviews forChewy Apple Oatmeal Cookies
"These cookies are so chewy delicious!! I like to double the recipe and use half dried apples and half dried apricots chopped. I've never met a person who hasn't loved them!! I've shared the recipe many times!!"
"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."
"I enjoyed the different take on oatmeal cookies with the dried apple but I think the next time I bake these I will also add the raisins maybe along with the dried apples."
"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!"
"if i wanted to use fresh apples, would i use the same amount?"
"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."
"This is a very good oatmeal cookie recipe. I have made them using apples as well as raisins. Delicious!"
