Baking My Way: Granola Apple Cookies

(As you can see I didn't put the glaze on. I tried the cookies when they were done and I thought they were sweet enough without it so I thought I'd just leave them)

These cookies are seriously tasty! I wasn't too sure what I would think of apples in cookies but wow, are they good!! I would highly recommend these cookies and I think they would be great for a picnic or a camping trip!

       Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup butter, softened
  • 1/4  cup milk
  • 1  tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1  teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1  egg
  • 1 1/2  cups all purpose flour
  • 1  cup whole wheat flour
  • 1  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1  teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2  cups finely chopped apples
  • 1  cup granola
  •  
    Glaze 
  • 3/4  cup powdered sugar
  • 2  to 3 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, combine brown sugar and margarine; beat until light and fluffy. Add milk, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, lemon peel and egg; blend well. Add all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Stir in apples and granola. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
