Apple Cheddar Cookies

These apple-cheese cookies are a cross between, oatmeal cookies, and cheddar biscuits with the addition of chunks of apple. The flavor of these cookies will vary depending on the sharpness of the cheddar cheese you use (I used a sharp, smoked cheddar), and how sweet your apples are. You can’t go wrong, so just go with what you like.
