This cookie is cake-like, nice and soft. I made two batches for my son’s 1st grade class. The first batch was with good tasty granny smiths, the second was with red delicious. The granny smith batch was a bit wetter and much more flavorful, while the red delicious batch was very low in flavor. I recommend using good tasty apples. I also used butter instead of shortening and 1 1/2 c. of finely chopped apples in each batch. This was great for the kid’s apple fair at school.
I love this recipe. I just made it for a sick friend. Did change it a bit, because I cannot see using soo much shortening – it’s gross. I used butter instead…same amount. And then substituted an oriental pear instead of the apple. Used Almond slivers instead of walnut. All the rest was the same. It came out yummy.
These were WICKED good! I was looking for a good recipe to use leftover apples in. These bake up really well – the dough puffs out nicely when cooked. GREAT flavor too – nice combo with the nutmeg, etc.
Fantastic cookies! I used whole wheat flour instead of the white flour, added about 2 Tbsp of whole flax seed and 1/4 cup ground flax seed, and instead of the nuts, I just used 1 1/2 cups of finely diced apple. I sprinkled them with cinnamon/sugar before I baked. Turned out great! I’ll definitely make these again!
I have been looking for a moist oatmeal cookie recipe for years but have failed until this one caught my eye. Reading all of the reviews I took their advice and used butter instead of shortening and added chocolate chips too. Instead of dicing the apples I chopped them in my foodprocesser and my husband RAVED!! Thank-you so much for this great recipe!
I made these today – I substituted splenda for the sugar, and in place of shortening, I used 1/4 cup butter, and the rest applesauce to cut down on fat/calories. I doubled the cinammon and nutmeg. These were awesome cookies! Next time I’ll triple the batch to have some for the freezer.
WELL DONE. This is a GREAT apple cookie recipe. Easy to make – as you will probably have all the ingredients already on-hand: All you need is to get some fresh apples! When I made these, I didn’t think that there was enough dough to hold together all the walnuts, oatmeal and apple. But I was wrong- they bake up perfectly. I only got 2 dozen out of this recipe instead of the 3 dozen it claims. I will double this recipe next time. It’s a good recipe – great combination of different ingredients make it a wonderful apple spice cookie.
1 cup rolled oats
