Hey there! You may be wondering what these apple cookies are doing on a paleo-ish food blog. Well…. it dates back to when I wasn’t a paleo-ish blogger, and it’s one of our favorites. And it’s apparently one of your favorites, too, because it’s been flying around Pinterest like crazy for the past few years.
Eventually I’d like to clean it up and make it (at least) gluten and dairy-free, but in the meantime it’ll stay and have a home here on my blog as totally-worth-it recipe we’d indulge in.
- ½ cup butter, softened (4 ounces or one stick)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup milk
- 2 cups flour
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon cloves
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups chopped apple
- 1 Tablespoon melted butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ¼ teaspoon maple flavoring
- 2-3 Tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Cream butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until light in color, about 1-2 minutes.
- Add egg and milk; stir to combine. Add remaining dry ingredients (except apple) and stir just until combined. Gently fold in the apples.
- Drop by heaping tablespoons onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for about 10-12 min or until tops don't look wet anymore.
- To make the glaze, whisk together all glaze ingredients in a small bowl. When the cookies have cooled for a few minutes, drizzle each cookie with glaze.
