We don’t have an apple tree in our garden. But we know someone who does 🙂
So I am now the proud owner of a large carrier bag full of Bramley apples.
I love apple crumble, and I love apple pie, but I was in the mood for trying something a bit different.
I wanted … cookies
Why is it that you can find just about every flavour cookie under the sun but you rarely see apple featuring?
Mmmm, moist chewy apple cookie with a hint of cinnamon spice.
‘Scuse me whilst I drool a while.
I combined sugar and butter with peeled, cored, chopped and cooked Bramley.
Added flour, bicarbonate of soda, and baking powder
Dolloped it onto a greased baking tray
Baked at gas 5 for 15 mins and got
And not even nice tasting cow pats (did I really just write that?)
You know those pan scourers with sponge an one side and tough matted fibrous stuff on the other? Imagine a cold, damp, flattened one of those and you come close to the experience of eating these cookies.
On the plus side I may have just invented the first dessert to also scale and polish your teeth.
And now I know why you rarely get apple cookies.
