Apple Cheese Cookies

Please don’t let the cheese put you off, I want you to trust me on this one. This was the first cookie I ever had, when I was two, and I have loved them ever since. They are fantastic and the cheese just melts in, you can’t really see it, or taste it, it just makes them extra scrumptious. They are chock full of oats, apples, cheese, and raisins, so they are pretty healthy as far as cookies go. Yesterday morning we spent taking our eldest to the dentist to get spacers put in (the pediatric dentist here in town is more butcher than dentist, so we drive 45 minutes away). In the afternoon was the boys swimming lessons (which they love by the way) where they are slowly turning into fish. In between, I had just enough time to whip up a batch of cookies while the kids played outside. It was chilly, but clear and bright, and not a single breeze. I hope you try them, they really are delicious. Apple Cheese Cookies

  • 3/4 cup AP flour (plain flour)
  • 2/3 cup softened butter
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1 apple peeled and chopped
  1. Combine flour, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
  2. Add oats, cheese and raisins, mix well.
  3. Stir in apples.
  4. Drop by heaping tablespoons full onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 375 ° for 15 minutes (mine are usually done at about 12 so keep an eye on them). You want the bottom edge to just be browning, they will look a tad underdone when they need to come out.
  6. Cool and enjoy!
