How to Make Apple Cinnamon Cookies
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Then line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside.
After that, peel and chop the apples into bite sized pieces and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and shortening until blended. Then, add in the white and brown sugar and mix again until smooth and fluffy.
Next, add the eggs and mix again until well incorporated.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Proceed to add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, 1 cup at a time, mixing well between each addition.
Once all of the dry ingredients have been added, fold in the chopped apple pieces and the white chocolate chips.
Proceed to scoop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto your prepared baking sheets.
Place in the preheated oven and bake for 9-10 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
How long are apple cinnamon cookies good for?
I would recommend keeping these cookies in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. This will help to keep them from spoiling too soon because the apple chunks in them will shorten the lifespan of the cookies just a tad.
Can I freeze apple cinnamon cookies?
Yes, after the cookies have cooled completely, you can place them into an airtight container for up to 3 months. Let the cookies thaw in the fridge for a few hours before biting into them, as they will be pretty hard when frozen solid.
