Hi, sweet friends! Who remembers these Cheddar Apple cookies?? I shared them back in 2017, but thought I’d bring them back because ’tis the season for all things apple.
Oh, and also we went apple picking this weekend and I have enough apples to last until next fall, so…
My mom used to make these cheddar apple cookies when I was little, and she just brought them to my house last weekend. I’m pretty sure she considered them a health food in the 80’s since they don’t have a whole lot of sugar. (Don’t mind the butter and cheese. We’re from Wisconsin.)
The original recipe is from a Quaker oats recipe book and they were called “Portable Apple Cheese Pleasers,” which will never not make me laugh. I mean, which cookies aren’t portable?
Also, I know it seems weird to put cheese in cookies, but believe me…it works. The unexpected combination of apples, cheddar and raisins really make these goodies a favorite in our home.
