I’ve been making batch after batch of these cookies using the apples from our trees. They are spicy, chewy and delicious. They are the perfect way to use up the abundance of apples we have this year.
Gluten Free Apple Spice Cookies
Yield 24 cookies
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups gluten free flour
1 tsp. xanthum gum
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 large apple, chopped (approx. 1 cup)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix brown sugar, butter and egg until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Add the apple and mix until completely blended.
I use a cookie scoop and put four rows of five on a large cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
