Fall Recipe: Apple Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter and Apple Cookie Recipe1
I have a scrumptious recipe to share with you today.. Apple Peanut Butter Cookies.
Can you say YUM?
I made these over the weekend and they were gone in no time, let’s be honest, nothing sweet lasts long around this house.. Daniel and I both have a major sweet tooth and so do the little ones, well an aspiring sweet tooth anyway ;)
Using apples in the recipe is more nutritious and it really brings out the other flavors like the cinnamon and brown sugar. I could go on and on about sweets but let’s get to this mouth watering cookie recipe.

Apple Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Prep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
  • Yield: 15 Servings

  • In a large bowl, cream the shortening, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in apple.
