Apple Cinnamon Cookies with Maple Cinnamon Glaze

Leave a comment

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

1 egg

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.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until tops are dry (mine took 11 mins).  Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.  Drizzle glaze over the cookies.  

For the glaze:  Whisk together all ingredients except water.  Add water until the glaze reaches the desired consistency.
