Pin It!  



You all know Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms, and if you don't...you need to stop over and take a look!  The recipes are perfect for any occasion, there are reviews and lots of giveaways!  One cookie that is quite scrumptious are these Apple Oatmeal Cookies...they are very moist and have just the right amount of sweetness.  You can add chocolate chips or raisins, but I think they’re flavorful enough without them!  With 1 cup of shredded apple and 2 cups of oatmeal, you almost don’t feel guilty eating them!  I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients are as follows:   

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 cup shredded apple, lightly packed  (I used Cortland)
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

(optional)
1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels  or 1 cup baking raisins

Directions:  

 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

2.  In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and light brown sugar until smooth.  Add the vanilla and eggs and beat until blended.

3.  In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and oatmeal.  Add this to the creamed mixture on low speed until combined.  Add the apple, chocolate chips, and walnuts on low speed.

4.  Place rounded tablespoons of dough two inches apart on the sheet pan.  Bake for 12 minutes.  The centers will be soft and the edges should be golden brown.  Test the centers with a tooth pick.  It should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs attached.
