Reviews for Chewy 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!"
"Everyone loved these. My great Aunt and my Grandma were even impressed! :)"
"I didn't have apples in the house. I am not a huge fan of raisins to use for a substitute however I used Raisinettes! What a great taste! So glad I had the candies on hand. These are chewy and delicious. So great a basic recipe for Chewy Oatmeal cookies that anything you enjoy would be great in these."
"one of my favorites to make and eat...i love oatmeal cookies but i detest raisins so this is a great alternative!"
"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."
"i modified recipe, i replaced 1/2 the butter with applesauce,used 1/2 c brown sugar and for the rest of sugar i used splenda, i used 3/4c of whole wheat flour and the rest i used a combination of white flour and ground flax seed to make 3/4 of a cup, i omitted the salt and used blueberries cranberries raspberries and walnuts but i didn't use apples.."
"My family loves chopped prunes & and dates in them...the kids don't have a clue!dryerlint"
"I'm gonna try these with grated apple or zucchini and see how they do. Wish me luck"
"use fresh apples diced up instead. Also raisins add another texture!"
"Did the fresh apples turn out ok?"
"did you receive a reply about using fresh apples? I have so many apples. Thank you."
"Did you ever try it with fresh apples. Did it work? Please let me know.Thank-you!"
"These cookies are insanely AMAZING! They taste like a warm apple pie right out of the oven! I hope that they taste just as good the next day. Without a doubt, this is a recipe that I will continue to make. Might even be worth trying it with other dried fruit!"
" Can you use fresh apples instead of dried?
"These are so yummy, and very easy to make! I have made them several times now and my brothers just love them!"
"These were very good and easy to make! Thank you.CA"
"These cookies are absolutely delicious. We have never really been oatmeal cookie fans but these cookies add a new twist with the apples in them! I usually add nutmeg, ginger, and cloves to the batter too."
"I sprinkle a little home made cinnamon sugar on the diced dried apples and let it sit while I mix the rest of the ingrediants. Makes it extra cinnamony."
