Apple Spice


Our house is finally getting back to normal after getting hit by the tri-cold. Thank goodness! I was beginning to dread watching another episode of Seinfeld which I would have never thought possible.

Our baby boy is also still getting used to the time change so he was up at 5:30 am. Needless to say we have had quite a long morning so far and getting a lot done. I have not baked anything in awhile so I thought I'd get a cookin' in these wee hours.

I usually adore anything chocolate and Derek goes for fruit laced baking. Since I am trying to cut down on my sweet intake I decided to play it safe and look for something suited to Derek's taste. I found this little apple cookie recipe that is quite delicious. It's a cookie recipe, but they almost remind me of a sweet muffin or cake because they are spongy and fluffy. I also decided to ice and add a sprinkle of cinnamon to accentuate the apple flavor.

Here's the recipe for these Apple Cookies:

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup finely chopped apples

Add ingredients in the order listed. Drop dough by the teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Raisins and nuts may be added if desired.

Icing:
1 cup icing sugar with 1-2 tbls. milk. Icing will be a thick liquid texture.

Put 1 tsp. of icing on the warm cookie so that it melts leaving a thin layer of icing. Sprinkle with cinnamon after icing has set.

Enjoy!
