Apple Cinnamon Cookies with Maple Glaze

Apple Cinnamon Cookies with Maple Glaze

These apple cinnamon cookies with maple glaze are the perfect fall cookie and I was thrilled when I found this recipe on Nourish and Fete. I love that these delicious cookies are filled with spices, bits of tart apple, and drizzled with a delicious maple glaze.

Even though my kids are having to do school online from home right now, I decided to maintain our yearly tradition of making them a special treat on their first day of school–10th & 12th grade this year! Seriously, time is flying by way too quickly and it seems like yesterday they were just starting grade school. Sigh. Both of my kids finished their online classes and enjoyed a couple of these cookies warm from the oven. They both deemed these apple cinnamon cookies with maple glaze really delicious and most definitely blog-worthy! I love that they will never be too old for an after school treat.

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Cookies with Maple Glaze

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Using an electric hand mixer, cream together the brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves, salt, and nutmeg together until well combined.

Gradually add the oat mixture to the butter mixture until combined.

Sprinkle the lemon juice over the diced apples and toss to evenly coat them. Add the apples to the cookie dough and stir gently to combine.

Use a cookie scoop or spoon dough into rounds of about 2 tablespoons each, place a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
