Shredded apples and apple pie spice in a cookie taste like you’re biting into Fall. With just 8 ingredients you can bake these delicious, soft and buttery Apple Cookies in just a few minutes!
Tips and Tricks for Making This Apple Cookies Recipe:
- Before mixing the dry ingredients like all-purpose flour, baking soda, and granulated brown sugar, sift them individually. This easy but very important step would make your cookies nice and evenly textured. It wouldn’t be fun biting into a lump of flour in between 🙂
- After baking your Apple Cookies, store them in an airtight container so you can enjoy them for several days – that is if you did not eat the whole batch in one sitting.
- If you do not have nonstick cookie sheets or pans, you can line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- To keep your apple shreds from turning brown, you can soak the apple slices in water with lemon juice before shredding.
