Excellent recipe, needed just 2 tweaks to make it mine: First, instead of dicing the apples, I sliced them thin and pushed them into the dough on top. Apple in every bite and VERY pretty! Sprinkled apples with cinnamon sugar when they were out. Second: I had just 5-6 candied ginger chunks in the spice jar, so I made them very, very small to give just a little hint to the batter. Excellent cookie! Want to try them with butter vs. shortening next time!
These cookies are so good. Taste close to apple crisp..
Really tasty and fluffy, almost cake-like texture. Just the right amount of cinnamon, too. I had to substitute a little butter, as I ran out of shortening, but they still came out great; may try all butter next time...
These cookies are delicious! I made this recipe exactly as written... though we use non-hydrogenated shortening to avoid the trans fats and I'm not sure if that would make a difference. I also lined my cookie sheet with parchment so that greasing the sheet wasn't necessary. These turned out moist, chewy and very tasty. Mine didn't seem to have the troubles other reviewers mentioned. The only exception is that if you try to sneak one while too warm they do fall apart. If you wait until well cooled they stay together just fine. I should note that I pulled the sheet of parchment (with the cookies on them) off the cookie sheet to cool. Thanks, Karen for a great recipe!
Delicious, especially when you hit a bite of apple.
These were great Oatmeal Apple Cookies. We loved all the chewy goodness these cookies had to offer. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.
These are exactly as I hoped they would be - soft, chewy, moist, with just the right amount of sweetness - sooo good! I will definitely be making these again.
I needed some cookies for our sack lunches this week and was in the mood for a nice, fall-like cookie and came upon your recipe. Came together in a flash; decreased oil to 1/2 c and still had to add 1 additional cup of flour to get the cookies to even come together enough to bake. Baked up right at 11 minutes; are nice an moist and very hearty. More of an oatmeal cookie taste, apple and cinnamon a very subtle so I may increase both of those next time and sub part of the oil for applesauce. Thanks for posting a nice fall cookie recipe!
These are delicious! I was looking for a different kind of oatmeal cookie and this recipe was the big winner. I usually follow the recipe exactly but sometimes I substitute white chocolate chips for the nuts...Yum! Thanks, Karen, for posting. These are a big hit in my house.
I brought this to a dance and everyone enjoyed this cookie. I used 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar and two cups oats. Otherwise followed as written. 3/4 cup sugar made them plenty sweet for our taste.
