It’s no secret that I love autumn, and biscuits, so it just seemed right to make autumn-inspired apple, and cinnamon cookies.
I reworked a recipe I’ve used for vegan cookies a couple of times to create delicious, soft, apple spice cookies. They’re so delicious and perfect for a cosy autumn day all snuggled up with a hot drink and a book.
You can control how soft and squishy your cookies are in the middle by making them thinner or thicker. If you like cookies which are raw in the middle, make them thicker.
I’m really happy with how these cookies turned out, and the base recipe is really easy to customise to whatever flavours you fancy trying.
- 1/2 cup vegan butter (I used Vitalife)
- 1 cup dark brown muscovado sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoons of plain flour
- 1/2 an apple (normal apple, doesn't need to be a cooking apple)
- 1 and 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
- 100g chocolate (UK people's; Tesco's Finest cooking chocolate is vegan)
- 1. Preheat the oven to 190C / 375F
- 2. Combine the butter and sugar until creamy and well combined
- 3. While that's mixing, cut up the apple and chocolate into small chunks
- 4. Mix the cornstarch, baking powder and water, before adding to the butter and sugar.
- 5. Add the flour, chocolate chips, and apple until it forms a dough. I've found that depending on the kind of butter you use, you might need to add more flour. If it's a bit wet, keep adding flour tablespoon at a time until it's a well-combined matte-looking dough.
- 6. Place on a tray, with baking paper and a sprinkle of flour. I find using an ice cream scoop / tablespoon a good measure. You might need to squish them down a bit, to make sure the middle cooks.
If you give these a go, please send me a photo and let me know what you think.
