apple pie toffee cookies
These cookies just sounded good and different from your average cookie so we had to give them a try. Graham crackers, fresh apple, toffee bits! They're great especially with a tall glass of cold milk. I doubled the recipe so we could share them with friends.
apple pie toffee cookies (Inside BruCrew Life)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/3 cups flour (I needed 1/4 to 1/2 cup additional flour)
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup finely chopped apple (we grated ours)
1/2 cup toffee baking bits
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon shortening
In a mixing bowl, cream the sugars and butter until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. In a bowl, combine flour, crumbs, baking powder, salt and spices. Add to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in the apple and toffee bits by hand.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on pan for 2-3 minutes and remove to wire rack to cool completely.
Melt the white chips and shortening. Spoon into a plastic bag and cut the tip off. Drizzle over cookies.
