Apple Sugar & Spice Holiday cookies start as a traditional butter cookie. Then they are spiked with warm cinnamon and pumpkin spice, and finished with little slices of tart green winter apple. #fbcookieswap “Yay-Yum!” (Feel free to use that)
Oh, the holidays! Baking concoctions of cookies and pies, truffles and spiced nuts, so many to try- so short of a season. While I was browsing delicious recipe ideas last year on one of my favorite blogs, I noticed a pretty cookie swap icon, and as curiosity took over, I clicked on it…. and low and behold it was open for joining, just had to wait for it to come around again this year and I was in on the cookie swap. Yes!! This is how it goes…
Cookies for you
Cookies for me
Cookies for kids cancer!
This recipe yields 3-4 dozen petite cookies, which is perfect because you’ll want at least a dozen to yourself… I did. Don’t judge me. Apples, Nuts, ummm 2 sticks of butter? Well, 2 out 3 on the healthy scale’s not too bad.
First soften that butter to a nice room temp. To speed up the process, (because we need cookies now!) cut the butter into cubes. Then cream the butter and sugar, add some egg, and toss in the flour & spice until it becomes a nice big ball of cookie dough goodness, then fold in sliced almonds for a satisfying crunch addition.
