Cinnamon Apple Sandwich Cookies

Print Recipe
Serves: 12 cookies

Ingredients

  • The icing:
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced small
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • The cookies:
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup white flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • Scant ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Cinnamon Sugar:
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon powdered cinnamon

Instructions

1

For the icing:

2

Heat the apples, butter and cinnamon together over medium heat. Cook the apples down, mashing them as you go, until completely cooked down; about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and blend in a food processor until mostly smooth- it’s okay to leave a few apple-y bits. Transfer to a large bowl and mix with the powdered sugar. Chill for 20 minutes to set the icing.

3

For the cookies:

4

Preheat the oven to 350*F. Combine the sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cloves and salt. Slowly add the wet to the dry, mixing only until just combined.

5

In the bottom of a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar together with a fork. Using your hands and a tablespoon, form the cookies into balls and roll in the cinnamon-sugar. Place on a baking tray, leaving at least 1” between each ball.

6

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies have flattened out and the bottoms lift easily off the baking tray. Allow to cool completely before icing.

7

To make the sandwich cookie, ice the bottom of one cookie, then stick it together with another cookie of the same size. Will keep for up to one week if tightly wrapped.

    these look freaking amazing – with all that gooey apple goodness seeping out the sides. I am thinking that this dog sitting is very good training for another addition to your home…

      Haha, I know, right? We’ve been calling her our practice baby. Although something tells me we still don’t really know what we’re in for… 🙂

    I am so excited about these cookies!!!! And your puppy story. Mine likes to stand off to the side while I’m cooking just in case I drop something which pretty much means she is always under my feet. Annoying. Granny Smiths are my favorite baking apples!!! These are gorgeous– hurray for Leftovers Club!

      Yay! I’m happy we got paired together this month. I’m a day late in mailing your cookies but they went out this morning and you should have them by Tuesday, I’d say- let me know if you need me to track them!

      thanks, Todd! I’ve adopted the life motto of you can never have enough Granny Smith apples. I plan on making it a mantra.

    These cookies sounds so god, & perfect for fall! Good apples are definitely one of the things I miss most in CA. It’s not that we can’t get any, but there are just never enough. 🙂

      Girl, even in the East, there never seem to be enough apples. I’d like apples for days, thanks.

    Girl! I wish I had known you were hankering for Honeycrisps–I would have sent you some. We’ve had them at our farmer’s market for weeks! Anywho, I’m with you on the fall thing. I get so giddy when October rolls around for the crisp air, the leaves and all the other reasons everybody mentions. Mainly, it’s because I have a serious cinnamon problem and I love the chance to put it in EV-ER-Y-THING, like um….these amazing cinnamon apple cookies.

    oh and p.s. your instagram needs more dog photos. do it for the children (and by children, I may or may not actually just mean me)

      I’m sure they’ve arrived at our Greenmarket, too, I just haven’t been able to get there in weeks! Grocery stores in Queens can be a little, um, behind.
      Duly noted on the dog pics. I’ll tag you in the next one! It’s not that I don’t take a billion pictures of her- you should see my camera folder in my phone: it’s all poodle, all the time. Instead of worrying about Instagram Overkill, I think I’ll just start going for it. It IS for the children, after all.

    Puppies are somehow the best and the worst. It’s awesome. And yours sounds adorable!!

    I am a honeycrisp FREAK as well. I refuse to eat pretty much any other apple. Except in baked goods, in which case granny smiths are the way to go! These sandwich cookies are seriously fabulous.

      Exactly where I’m at- Honeycrisps to eat, Grannies to bake! It’s that tart-sweetness, I die over it.
      As for the adorable puppy, she’s about 85% adorable and 15% pain in the ass. I think it’s a puppy thing 🙂

    Hey ale!! I’m so sorry I missed your comment when you posted it. It’s definitely baking powder- not baking soda. Big mistake and I’m so sorry, the recipe has been adjusted. Thanks for letting me know!! I was pregnant when I wrote it, so I’m blaming the mistake on hormones. (does that count?) Hope you’re having a great new year.
