Mrs Fields Apple Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
Slightly adapted from Mrs. Field's Cookie Book (I omitted the raisins).
- 2 1/2 cups AP Flour
- 1 cup Quick oats (not instant)
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Soda
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp Cloves
- 2 tsp Grated lemon zest
- 1 cup Dark brown sugar, packed
- 3/4 cup Butter
- 1 large Egg
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
- 1/2 cup Honey
- 1 cup Fresh Apple, peeled and Finely chopped (1 med apple) *I used a Royal Gala
- *Extra Quick oats (For Topping) *Optional
In a medium bowl combine the flour, oats, salt, soda, cinnamon, cloves and lemon zest. Mix well and set aside.
Cream the sugar and butter together in a large bowl using an electric mixer. Add the egg, applesauce and honey and beat at medium speed until smooth. Add the flour mixture, fresh apple and raisins, and blend at low speed until just combined. The dough will be quite soft.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart. If you wish, sprinkle the cookies with oats.
Bake the cookies for 23-25 minutes or until the bottoms are golden.
