Adding apple butter to oatmeal cookie batter will create the tastiest little cookie you’ll ever meet! These cookies are great during apple season, or any time of the year when you want a dessert that’s a little bit different.
Coming to you from a sketchy motel in Salt Lake City tonight, friends. The whole motel ordeal hasn’t been ideal, but the reason I’m here in Utah is pretty awesome. More on that in a bit. For now.. Apple Butter Oatmeal Cookies! This is the yummiest version of the oatmeal cookie that I’ve ever met. I had a jar of Apple Butter sitting in my fridge for weeks and I taunted my boys with the idea of creating an oatmeal cookie with apple butter hidden inside. Every single day after school they asked me if I had made those cookies yet.. MOM?! The ones with the apple butter inside?!? Finally I made the dang cookies and they were a hit all around. Turns out, apple butter transforms cookies into magical magic.
A few notes about Apple Butter Oatmeal Cookies:
Replace 1/2 cup of the brown sugar with honey for a slightly healthier cookie.
Spread extra apple butter over top of the cookies just before serving for an extra touch of fun and flavor!
Make your own Apple Butter (it’s so easy!) or you can find a jar at the store to make things even easier.
I’m here in Salt Lake City for a conference created specifically for food bloggers. It has been such an incredible, fulfilling, learning, growing experience that I do not yet have words for it. I am in the processing stages here in my smelly little motel room and I’m feeling so grateful for the friendships and connections I have made in the past few days.
If you have not checked out the rest of my recipes that display my (slight) obsession for apples, here are a few of them:
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, friends! Thank you so much for being here!
