These Apple Cluster Cookies taste like heaven. They are warm, sweet, and so incredibly comforting. I know I have been showing all of my mom’s recipes lately but how could I not? She is so incredibly talented and my role model. Both of my parents and my grandmothers are incredible in the kitchen and they all inspire me every single day with these simple traditional comfort foods. You only need 6 ingredients and a positive attitude and you will create something outstanding. Let’s get started:
Mom’s Apple Cluster Cookies
- 2 ¾ cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 2.5 teaspoons of baking powder
- ½ cup caster sugar
- 1 stick softened butter 1/2 cup
- 2 medium eggs
- 1-1.5 apples peeled and diced
- In a bowl whisk in your eggs really well until pale or use a mixer. Add in your sugar and with a mixer beat it until its pale and like a thick cream. Once the sugar and eggs have been mixed you can add in your softened butter and mix until smooth.
- In a separate bowl mix in your flour with your baking powder and slowly add it into your main bowl and switch to a fork as you combine it together with the butter, eggs, and sugar until you have a sticky dough that holds its shape. If you have to switch to a spatula or your hands go right ahead.
- Last but not least, peel and cut up 1-1.5 apples and cut them into small little pieces. Add your apples to your cookie dough and mix with a spoon or your hands until incorporated.
- Get a big spoon or small ice-cream scooper and spoon out your cookies as you gently shape them one by one. Our batter made 14 big cookies but you can make them as small or as big as you like.
- Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at a pre-heated 350 F degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool and enjoy. Use icing sugar on top when cooled for decoration.
