My friend Shari forwarded this recipe on and just in time since we had just picked up a bag of apples the day before.
These cookies are so so good and a nice change from the usual recipes I tend to lean on. They’re awesome on their own but the maple cinnamon glaze puts them over the top. I admit that I cringed at the tablespoon of cinnamon going into the glaze but I continued on and was glad I didn’t change a thing.
See all the yummy apple in there??
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 Tbsp sour cream (I didn’t have any on-hand so substituted heavy cream)
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp baking soda
2-3 apples, chopped (I went with three)
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 cup icing sugar
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1-2 Tbsp water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and sour cream; combine. Add remaining ingredients, except apple, and sitr to combine. Gently fold in apples.
For the glaze: Whisk together all ingredients except water. Add water until the glaze reaches the desired consistency.
