Adding apple butter to oatmeal cookie batter will create the tastiest little cookie you’ll ever meet! These chewy cookies are great during apple season, or any time of the year when you want a dessert that’s a little bit unique. Slather a bit of apple butter on top of your cookie to enjoy the fresh sauce!
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.
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.
HOW TO MAKE APPLE BUTTER OATMEAL COOKIES
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), combine the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla extract and beat on medium speed until creamy and free of lumps.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well. Gradually add to the butter-sugar mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined. Fold in the oats and apple butter. Mix until combined.
Using a medium cookie scoop, drop the dough by 1 1/2 tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 9-11 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and centers are firm. Let cool.
Spread extra apple butter over the tops just before serving for extra deliciousness!
