When you think of coziness and warmth, the first comforting dessert that comes to mind is apple pie, with its buttery, flaky crust, and warm apples with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Now, you can take that pie and wrap all the flavours into a bite-sized cookie! Here, we take all the apple pie flavours and bake them into a cookie that will make your tastebuds feel like you're biting into a slice of homemade apple pie.

Ingredients

Butter

50 gm

Maple syrup

1 tbsp(s), or honey

Unpacked brown sugar

¼ cup(s)

Vanilla extract

1 tsp(s)

Egg

1 medium, lightly beaten

Whole wheat flour

cup(s)

Uncooked rolled oats

1 cup(s)

Baking soda

½ tsp(s)

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp(s)

Ground nutmeg

1 tsp(s)

Lemon zest

2 tsp(s)

Apple

1 medium, peeled, cored, and finely diced

Powdered sugar (confectioner's)

3 tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. Melt butter and golden syrup in a medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Cool for 2 minutes, then stir in vanilla and egg. Add flour, oats, baking soda, spices, lemon zest and apple. Stir until well combined.
  3. Use clean wet hands to shape mixture evenly into 16 balls. Place on prepared trays, spacing them well apart and flatten slightly with fingers. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden. Stand cookies on trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Place icing sugar in a small bowl. Stir in enough cold water to reach a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cookies and leave to set before serving.
  5. Serving size: 1 cookie
