diced apple without peel
This cookie is cake-like, nice and soft. I made two batches for my son's 1st grade class. The first batch was with good tasty granny smiths, the second was with red delicious. The granny smith batch was a bit wetter and much more flavorful, while the red delicious batch was very low in flavor. I recommend using good tasty apples. I also used butter instead of shortening and 1 1/2 c. of finely chopped apples in each batch. This was great for the kid's apple fair at school.
I'm not sure what went wrong with these. I followed the recipe exactly and I was left with a thick, sticky batter. When I took them out of the oven they had gotten as big as pancakes and were just as flat. The flavor was bland and dissatisfying. My family ate them just to be nice, but I will most definitely not be making these again.
I love this recipe. I just made it for a sick friend. Did change it a bit, because I cannot see using soo much shortening - it's gross. I used butter instead...same amount. And then substituted an oriental pear instead of the apple. Used Almond slivers instead of walnut. All the rest was the same. It came out yummy.
These were WICKED good! I was looking for a good recipe to use leftover apples in. These bake up really well - the dough puffs out nicely when cooked. GREAT flavor too - nice combo with the nutmeg, etc.
I read all of the reviews before baking these and I adjusted a couple of things. I used 2 tsp. of cinnamon, 1 tsp. of nutmeg and added 1 tsp. of vanilla. Also I found it to be very moist when mixing, so I added another cup of oatmeal. I really think they turned out great. Moist and flavourful. I gave it 4 stars because of the adjustments.
I used whole wheat flour instead of the white flour, added about 2 Tbsp of whole flax seed and 1/4 cup ground flax seed, and instead of the nuts, I just used 1 1/2 cups of finely diced apple. I sprinkled them with cinnamon/sugar before I baked. Turned out great! I'll definitely make these again!
I have been looking for a moist oatmeal cookie recipe for years but have failed until this one caught my eye. Reading all of the reviews I took their advice and used butter instead of shortening and added chocolate chips too. Instead of dicing the apples I chopped them in my foodprocesser and my husband RAVED!! Thank-you so much for this great recipe!
make sure to remove cookies from the pan onto a cooling rack while still warm
