Apple Butter Oatmeal Cookies

After making and canning homemade apple butter, I looked for several recipes to use it in. I couldn't find a cookie recipe that I was in love with so I came up with these. These cookies will spread when baking so make sure you chill the dough prior to cooking and in between batches. These cookies are sweet but not too sweet and I used Granny Smith apples for the chopped apples because of the tartness they provide.

Moist, cake-like, tender, with bits of apple in every bite, we loved these cookies. They're perfect for fall. This cookie recipe does not call for any spices. The flavor comes from the apple butter. They spread a little while baking, so consider that when placing on the baking sheet. If you want a new fall dessert or need to make something for a bake sale, give these scrumptious cookies a try.
