We’re goin there.
These little beauties are a vital part of my fall experience.
I have fond memories of trips to the apple orchard to pick apples, choose our pumpkins for Halloween then make applesauce with Grandma once we got our loot home.
Yeah. That was my real life. It has been a good one.
So obviously I obsessed over apple picking this year until we made it happen.
This time I tried something new…apple cookies!
So much love.
These are officially part of the fall/apple/baking tradition I hold so dear.
They’re so soft they just melt in your mouth and they’re bursting at the seams with apple apple apple!
(Side note: Daniel doesn’t like cooked apples…he actually generally doesn’t like apples much…but he liked these cookies. Win.)
((Who doesn’t like apples…what is that?))
(((I love you, Daniel…)))
Maple is MADE for apples and this maple glaze is delicious but honestly…they didn’t even need it.
Apples have this on lock. Maple or not.
And so…let us cookie.
Start with some chopped apples!
butter + sugar + egg + milk
+ flour of course…also spices…
= super soft, fragrant dough!
Now for the coup de gras!
A little apple folding…
A little action shot…
What can I say? It’s pretty exciting around here. Look at all that action!
Also…check out this apple to dough ratio
I feel weird calling it dough.
It’s somewhere between batter and dough.
Nope. Didn’t work.
Either way..super soft dough takes a sweet tropical vacay in my oven and comes back tanned and beautiful
Looks like they remembered their sunscreen!
Ignore that rogue smudge from some doofus piling these on top of each other.
((I’m telling you…they’re really soft.))
A drizzle of maple glaze, a nice cold glass of milk, a sunshiney day…
What more could you possibly ask for?
Some fellow apple lovers!
(except that good lookin one on the left…he’s more of an apple tolerater)
