What’s App-le Doc? Butterscotch Cookies

What's App-le Doc? Cinnamon Cookies from OhMyPotluck.comThe smell of cinnamon filling the kitchen instantly makes me think of autumn. It’s the time of year when apples are in abundance, and what spice pairs with apples better than cinnamon?

The day I was baking these, my BFF was greeted by the smell of cinnamon wafting out into the hallway of our apartment building, and he was overjoyed to find out the smell’s epicenter was our kitchen. I’m a cruel person to inflict these tempting smells on my neighbors, but no one’s complained.

These cookies, with delicious bits of tart apple mingling with sweet cookie dough, will fulfill any autumnal sweet craving you have. Plus, the golden colours remind me of the season’s lovely leaves.

Here’s a lovely song by Marika Hackman that’s perfect for serenading you through baking these cookies. It’s appropriately titled “Cinnamon”. The song came out last fall on the Sugar Blind EP, which I’d recommend checking out if you enjoy this autumnal melody:

I’m hoping to post a few more apple snacks this fall, so if you have any requests, please leave a comment below. And don’t forget to let me know what you think of these cookies.

    Wow, those look insanely delicious! However, I am not much of a baker. My daughter is the baker in this house. 🙂
