Apple Oatmeal Creme Pies

We’re no stranger to do-it-yourself oatmeal cream pies! Previously we’ve whipped up gingerbread oatmeal cream pies and molasses cream pie cookies… and now, we’re including a cinnamon apple model to the household!

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Cookies

The key to including tons of apple taste with out making the cookies mushy from recent apple or applesauce? CRUNCHY DRIED APPLES! They add a ton of taste and are simply out there at most grocery shops or huge field shops like Goal/Walmart.

  • Oats: Old school rolled oats work finest right here! I don’t counsel utilizing fast oats or instantaneous oats.
  • Spices: Cinnamon, floor ginger, floor nutmeg, and floor all-spice make up our do-it-yourself apple pie spice mix. In case you want, you might sub 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of apple pie spice as an alternative.
  • Baking Soda: Be sure yours is recent! Helps the cookies unfold.
  • Salt: Balances the sweetness and enhances the opposite flavors within the cookies. In case you use salted butter, omit this ingredient.
  • Butter: Unsalted works finest, however salted butter could also be utilized in a pinch. Merely omit the salt known as for. You’ll brown the butter, which reinforces the flavour x10!
  • Sugar: Darkish brown sugar is my suggestion, however mild brown sugar could also be used if that’s what you could have available. However observe this variation will alter the colour and texture barely I don’t counsel subbing granulated sugar.
  • Molasses: Provides taste and provides the cookies their signature chewy texture.
  • Apple Butter: Provides much more apple taste! And makes the cookies moist and chewy.
  • Vanilla Extract: As at all times, I counsel utilizing actual pure vanilla; not imitation or synthetic.
  • Eggs: Remember to use massive eggs, and convey them to room temperature earlier than use.
  • Baked Crunchy Apple Chips: I counsel the baked model, however use no matter selection yow will discover. If the sizes range, you may at all times weigh them to make sure you use the identical quantity known as for.

P.S. I positively put extra cookies than this than seen under, however I solely put a couple of right here so you may actually see what they need to appear to be earlier than and after baking!

These cookies bake at 350 levels and are really easy! No electrical mixer wanted. You’ll simply want two massive bowls!

Cream Cheese Filling

Cream filling is actually what turns cookies into… nicely, cream pies! Right here’s what you’ll must make it:

  • Cream Cheese: Remember to use full-fat cream cheese and that it’s at room temperature.
  • Butter: Unsalted works finest, however once more, salted will work. Simply omit the salt known as.

  • Vanilla Extract: Only a small contact so as to add taste.
  • Salt: Balances the sweetness. If utilizing salted butter, omit.
