Apple Cider Cookies

The amount of diced apples is up to you. If you like a lot of apples, you can increase the recipe from 1 apple to 1-1/2 apples.



  • Cookie Dough

  • Apple Cider Glaze



Apple cider was always in my refrigerator during the fall months when I was growing up in rural Pennsylvania. We had plenty of apple trees orchards everywhere, and the owners of the orchard stands would make homemade apple cider. It was a cloudy, light brown color that smelled of crisp fall apples.

Since apples are ranked as a good source of vitamins, I wanted to know what benefits apple cider contained. Livestrong has an excellent article.

Of course, to make the yummy cider, you need spices; cinnamon, ground cloves, and allspice (sometimes called a Jamaican Pepper).  I found a great web site that talks about all kinds of spices called Spice Advice.

Please try some of my other apple recipes:

Cookie Dough

In a bowl, weigh or measure both sugars and set aside. In another bowl, weigh or measure the flour, baking powder, salt, allspice, cinnamon, and ground cloves, run a whisk through to blend. Dice the Granny apple and squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon on top to keep them from turning brown.


In a mixer, blend the butter and sugars for a couple of minutes at medium speed. Add the apple cider and vanilla extract and mix. Turn the mixer down and add the flour mixture about a third at a time; once the flour is incorporated, turn the mixer off. Add the diced apple, raisins, walnuts, and mix through for about a minute. Wrap the top of the bowl with plastic wrap loosely and refrigerate for about 1/2 hour.


Preheat oven to 350°. Using a medium cookie scoop, put 12 scoops onto a parchment-lined cookie pan and bake for 14-16 minutes. Leave the cookies on the pan for a minute or two before moving to a cooling rack.


Apple Cider Glaze

Combine powdered sugar, apple cider, cinnamon, and allspice and mix till smooth consistency. After the cookies have cooled, take a 1/2 tsp of glaze and drizzle over each cookie.

Hi Candice,

No I did not add eggs into this cookie. I have a friend that has a granddaughter that can’t have any eggs, so every once in a while I create a cookie recipe that contains no eggs. Just remember that fresh fruit cookies need air so no containers with tight lids. You will have to let me know how they turn out for you.
