Foodie Friday: Chewy Apple Oatmeal Pie Cookies

There is nothing more delectable in the fall then apple pie, hot lattes, and pumpkin spice everything. The new Laura Geller Delectable eyeshadow palette totally inspired me to get into the kitchen and start baking again. Her new nude eyeshadow palette is the perfect shades to create bronze smokey eyes or a barely there look. These colors are so pretty that you can almost eat them. The shades of nudes reminded me of fall baked goods like apple pies and pumpkin whoopie pies...but I wanted to try something new. So I tried out a Apple Oatmeal Pie Cookie recipe from Amy's Healthy Baking...which I adapted into my own recipe.

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup instant oats
3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 tbsp milk (I used 2%)
1/2 light brown sugar
1 cup finely diced rep apple (or green apple...I used a grannysmith for tart taste)

STEPS:
1. Whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl
2. In a separate bowl whisk together butter, egg and vanilla. Then add in the light brown sugar and milk. Whisk together.
3. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated. 
4. Fold in the apples
5. Chill for 30 minutes
6. Pre-heat oven at 325 degrees
7. Drop cookie dough into 15 rounded scoops onto a cookie sheet (use parchment paper or oil spray) and slightly flatten. 
8. Bake at 325 degrees for 13-15 minutes. 
9. Cool on pan for 10 minutes until transferring on wire rack
10. Enjoy with a latte or spiked apple cider.

These came out nice and chewy but for me they need a little something extra...just an extra bit of sweetness. I added some cinnamon sugar on top (1 tbsp of cinnamon and 1 tbsp of sugar mixed together). I'm a huge cinnamon fan so next time I do make these I will add extra cinnamon to the batter but the cinnamon sugar adds the sweetness that I felt like these cookies were missing. My husband and I enjoyed these Saturday night while watching movies and drinking some homemade hot spiked apple cider.
