Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by Mirj2338
READY IN: 37mins
YIELD: 48 cookies




  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, combine the flour, oats, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and lemon zest.
  • Mix well with a wire whisk and then set it aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer.
  • Add the egg, applesauce and honey, and beat at medium speed until smooth.
  • Add the flour mixture, fresh apple and raisings.
  • Blend at a low speed until just combined.
  • Don't overmix it, and don't worry, it's supposed to be a soft dough.
  • Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons on to ungreased cookie sheets (I like to cover the sheets in parchment paper).
  • The cookies should be spaced about 1 ½ inches apart.
  • Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden.
