Apple Crisp Cookies

"Let's face it, apple crisp is great but you can't easily pack it for lunch or snack on it as easy as you may want. This was my inspiration for coming up with this cookie. If you like apple crisp you will equally like this cookie. I prefer a background nutmeg flavor, feel free to add more (or leave it out) for your taste."

Ready In:
24-36 Cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cream butter with electric mixer; add sugar and cream together until fluffy.
  • Add vanilla, egg, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and baking powder. Mix until well blended.
  • Mix in 1/2 of the flour with electric mixer until well blended.
  • Stir, by hand, remaining flour and oats. Depending on the humidity you may need a little less oats or a little more.
  • Stir in the chopped apples. (I used 1 package of Del Monte dried apples that you can get in the supermarket in the same isle as the raisins, dried apricots).
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. I used a soup spoon but if you like smaller cookies, use a regular spoon.
  • Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Rotate the pan if necessary after 7-8 minutes.

    Apple Crisp Cookies says to cream butter with sugar and cream but there is no cream listed on the ingredients.

    Mmmm...portable apple crisp. Delicious. Tastes exactly like apple crisp! i did use fresh apples instead of dried ones. They turned out perfectly. i've made them twice now. Thanks for creating and sharing such a yummy recipe!

    These are good but I recommend either using fresh apples or soaking the dried apples in water or apple juice before adding them. They came out a little dry even using only one cup of oats. Great flavor!

    Where's the crisp crunch? I would suggest sprinkling sugar on top before baking. That will solve the missing crunch & add the missing sweetness.

    VERY GOOD COOKIES! Not too sweet, just right. Very reminiscent of Apple Crisp. Made exactly as posted, the only tweek I would make for our personal taste is a dash or two more of cinnamon. Thanks!

    Nice consistency but not much flavor. Needs more sugar.

    Fresh apples instead of dried or adding applesauce to moisten them up


Hello! Like just about everyone on this site, I love to cook. I especially love to bake--cookies, bars, cakes, and breads. My favorite cookbooks and recipe sources are those by Pillsbury, old copies of Farm Journals that I pick up at garage sales, Betty Crocker and this site. One of my real passions in cooking is experiementing...I look at a recipe and can't help but think how I could make it even better. I am hoping to post some of my creations to share.
