Soft & Chewy Apple Cookies

Bruce and I took our annual trip to the apple orchards in Rexburg on Saturday.

We decided to restrain ourselves more this year, and only got 13 pounds of apples, instead of the 40 pounds we walked away with last year.  Somehow, each time we've gone, the orchards have been pretty well deserted, so we have the run of the place ourselves.  Though we did come across a few birds, and a cute little bunny eating a fallen apple, it was just us once again.

This year's crop is going to largely turn into Apple Chips, Apple Sauce, and a few desserts.  First on the list were these tasty Apple Cookies.  Soft, chewy, and bursting with tasty bits of apple and cinnamon chips, these lasted less than 24 hours before they were all completely gone!

These cookies are great because they don't get super soggy like some apple cookies do, and they have a wonderful flavor that is impossible to beat!

Soft & Chewy Apple Cookies


3/4 c. butter (softened)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 c. flour
1 package (3.4 oz) vanilla pudding mix
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp salt
1 c. apples, chopped small and coarse
1 c. cinnamon chips


Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.  Add the vanilla and egg and beat until light and fluffy.

In a small bowl, sift together the flour, pudding mix, baking soda, spices, and salt.  Add to the wet mixture and stir until well combined.  Stir in the apples and cinnamon chips until mixed throughout.

Drop by rounded tablespoon onto a silpat lined baking sheet.  Bake 10-12 minutes.
