Today was my cleaning day at home, but I wanted to do something creative because that’s what I love to do! I decided to bake breakfast cookies for later since I had some apples that needed to be used. The recipe is from an old Quaker Oats recipe book, but my family affectionately calls them “Apple Cookies.” I have been baking them since my boys were toddlers, and they are now 26 and 27 and still love them! Here are some pictures I made during the cooking process.
Here is the recipe in case you want to try them. I always double the recipe because they disappear so quickly. They are excellent with coffee or for a quick breakfast when your family is in a hurry.
Apple & Cheese Pleasers
2/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped or grated apple ( I grate the apples because they blend into the batter easier)
¾ cup raisins (optional)
