Cookie Recipe of the Week: Apple Walnut Drop Cookies recipe - Use Just 1 Apple to Make This Easy Cookie Recipe

Image: The Cookie Elf

This easy Apple Walnut Drop Cookies recipe is a soft, chewy version of apple cake or even apple pie … they’re like eating a warm, fragrant hug.

One reason they’re so easy is because the dough is no-fail. It’s one of those recipes that works every time, thanks to the brown sugar that softens the texture, the baking soda that leaves crinkles on the cookie surfaces, and of course the warm autumn flavors of apples and cinnamon.

Speaking of apples, you can use any kind – a boon if you want to use those with blemishes – although tart varieties give the cookies even more flavor. You need just one apple for the recipe if you dice it finely or two if you eliminate the walnuts. And if you want to use up all your extra apples you can make extra batches of the recipe because these cookies freeze well.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 8-10 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen
