Chewy Apple Cookies with Oatmeal and Raisins (Easy Recipe)

Apple Cookies

Learn how to make delicious apple cookies with oats and raisins in this easy recipe. These cookies are soft, chewy, and full of fragrant spices. Serve these chewy, but somewhat softer cookies to family and friends for a cozy treat for winter or any time of the year!

Besides how very good these cookies are, they also are so simple to bake and only need stirred with a large spoon to thoroughly mix the ingredients together. The most difficult part of making my recipe is peeling an apple and dicing it. The second most labor intensive chore is rolling the dough into small balls and immersing into the sugar and cinnamon for a final coating before baking. But I must be honest, the most agonizing part is smelling the tempting aroma of cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and nutmeg as they circulate through the house as these cookies bake.

My apple cookies freeze very well. In fact, since they are more fragile of a cookie freshly baked. Therefore, I like to place a plate of them in the freezer to harden before storing. This way they hold up much better and are easier to keep us from overindulging. You can take out a few at a time and just munch away.

If you also love apples, I hope you make my recipe. You also might want to try my apple custard pie and apples and rice pudding, which are both made regularly at our house.

Apple Cookies with Oatmeal and Raisins

Cookie Ingredients:
1 ½ cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder, leveled
½ teaspoons of baking soda, leveled
½ teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoons allspice
½ teaspoons ground cloves
½ teaspoons nutmeg
3/4 cup canola oil
1 cup of brown sugar (light or dark), packed
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of water
1 cup peeled, diced apples (about 1 large)
1 ½ cups quick oats
1 cup of raisins
Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:
1/4 cup of white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

To Prepare the Cookie Dough:

In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt together.

Now add the rest of the dry ingredients with spices, brown sugar, quick oats.

Add the egg, oil and water next. Stir with a large spoon to get the ingredients well combined and moistened.

Stir in the diced apples and raisins last.

This mixture will be somewhat sticky. I take a tablespoon and load it up with dough about the size of a walnut to deposit into my smaller bowl with the cinnamon-sugar to coat.

To Make the Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:

Mix the sugar with the cinnamon and place in a smaller mixing bowl.

Then finish shaping the dough into a ball to place on my greased cookie sheet.

Bake in a 375-degree oven for about eight to 10 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated.

Test with a toothpick to see if anything sticks.

These cookies will be soft once you take them from the oven.

Allow to cool for about one or two minutes before removing them from the cookie tray.

ENJOY!
