All American Cookies

(1 Votes)
Coming In:
3 dozen cookies
12 Min

Here's a cookie that brings together that great American combination of apples and Cheddar cheese.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except cheese, and mix well. Gradually add cheese and stir until evenly blended.
  4. Roll batter into balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased nonstick cookie sheets. Flatten cookies with a fork and sprinkle generously with sugar mixture. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden.
  5. Remove from cookie sheets while still warm.

Use mild or sharp Cheddar if you prefer. Make them your way.

you can't taste the cheese. theses are kind of dense,more like a biscuit. make sure to put a lot of sugar on each one

Love apple pie with sharp cheddar melted on top, so I'm sure this is terrific!

I love cheese, but in a cooking? Gonna have to try this to believe it!
