Apple Dippin' Peanut Butter Cookies

Picky Palate is one of my all-time favorite blogs. Jenny is awesome and she is always posting fantastic recipes. Pretty much every single one she posts gets bookmarked. And the best part about her recipes.... they are ALWAYS winners!

This cookie recipe is no different. They are filled with peanut butter, diced apples, and granola. The apples make them so moist! The cookies are also rolled in turbinado sugar and that gives them a delicious crunch.

My only recommendation for this recipe is to make two batches, especially if you are planning on sharing! :)

Apple Dippin' Peanut Butter Cookies
Recipe from Picky Palate

1 stick softened butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
3/4 Cup vanilla flavored granola clusters
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Cup diced apples, about 1/4 inch
1/2 Cup turbinado sugar, or other sugar of choice to roll cookies in

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until light mixed well. Beat in peanut butter until combined then add the egg and vanilla until well combined.

In a large bowl mix together the flour, granola, baking soda and salt. Slowly mix into the wet ingredients following the apples until just combined.

With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough, roll into sugar then place onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. With tines of a fork, press down slightly making an X on top of each cookie.

Bake for 8-9 minutes, cookies should look somewhat soft inside when you take them out. Let cool/finish baking out of oven for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
