Apple Ginger Cookies – thin, chewy cookies perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth!
These apple ginger cookies are perfectly thin, yet chewy (not crispy), and taste similar to apple pie but in cookie form!
I created this cookie recipe several years ago when my food photography left a lot to be desired. I’ve been going through and updating a lot of the older recipes and photographs. When I remade these cookies I couldn’t believe that I forgot about how good they are! I currently have some frozen in my freezer and it is only with a lot of discipline that I have not eaten them yet! My husband and kids really enjoy these cookies as well!

How to make Apple Ginger Cookies
First, you need to peel, slice, & finely dice 1 large or 2 medium granny smith apples. Cook the apples on the stovetop with the sugar and cinnamon just until tender, about 5 minutes then set aside. Sift together flour, baking soda, ginger, and salt. Next you will beat sugar, eggs, and softened butter. Now add apples to the dough, mix well. Last you will drop cookies by heaping tablespoons onto a baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
