Still enjoying the heck out of the season’s Honeycrisp harvest, and not wanting to leave my house after a hectic, short trip to southeastern Wisconsin to visit family for the weekend, I told the boy that he could help me make cookies.  I tried to make them as healthy as I could, and still delicious, so this is what we came up with….

Apple Oatmeal Cookies

3/4 c. butter

1 1/4 c. brown sugar

1 egg

1/4 c. milk

3 c. old fashioned oatmeal

1 c.  flour

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 T. vanilla

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 large peeled and diced Honeycrisp (or any apple of your choice)  If small, use 2.

1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly spray or grease baking sheet.  Cream butter, brown sugar, egg, milk and vanilla until smooth.  In separate bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.  Stir to combine and then add in oats, stirring again.  Add to creamed mixture a little at a time, beating on low.  When combined, stir in apples and walnuts.  If batter seems too liquid at this point,  add in a slight bit more flour.  I probably added in about 2 to 2 1/2 more tablespoons because mine seemed loose.

Drop by rounded tablespoon onto cookie sheet and bake approximately 12 minutes or so, until beginning to brown on the bottom. 

The result is a moist, almost cake-like cookie that captures the taste (and smell) of autumn. 

3 of them with a nice cup of coffee ended up being my lunch…
