Apple Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodles are my absolute favorite. I have made a lot of variations like Maple Snickerdoodles, Eggnog Snickerdoodles, and Pumpkin Snickerdoodles. I have also made White Chocolate Gingerdoodle Cookies. This year I decided I had to try something special for fall and use apples. And these Appledoodles were born.

Ingredients

  • Flour- Use all purpose flour for the best results.
  • Cream of tartar- This will stabilize your eggs and make them fluffier.
  • Baking soda- This will help your cookie dough rise.
  • Ground cinnamon- Cinnamon and apples go together perfectly.
  • Kosher salt– Brings out the flavors in your cookies.
  • Unsalted butter– Always use unsalted butter to control the amount of salt in your recipe.
  • Sugar– All good cookies need sugar.
  • Eggs– Use room temperature eggs for best results.
  • Pure vanilla extract- Always use pure vanilla for best flavoring.
  • Granny Smith Apple– For best use be sure to peel and shred.

How to Make Apple Snickerdoodle Cookies

Using a cheese grater peel and shred the apple, then put the apple shreds onto a paper towel and let the apples dry out while you make the dough.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

Beat together the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla into a larger mixing bowl until creamy, then slowly add in the dry ingredients.

Slowly stir and fold in the shredded apples.

Mix together the sugar and cinnamon into a smaller mixing bowl.

Take some dough using a ice cream scooper , and scoop into your hands and roll into a ball.

Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

Take the cinnamon sugar mixture and roll your dough ball into it, then put on a cookie sheet and  continue to repeat steps with remaining dough.

For 11-13 minutes, bake in the oven.

When it’s done allow to cool thoroughly.

Enjoy and Dig In!

Can I Use Apple Pie Spice In Place of Cinnamon Sugar?

Yes, you can absolutely can use apple pie spice in place of cinnamon sugar. I think this will add a nice variation to the cookies and have a fantastic flavor. You will still use the sugar but replace the cinnamon with the apple pie spice

Do Apple Snickerdoodle Cookies Need to be Refrigerated?

You can not refrigerate your apple-doodle cookies. For best results, always store in an airtight container at room temperature. There is another option to place them into a freezer using the same method of an airtight container. To keep your cookies from freezing together, place on a cookie sheet before freezing.
