We took the cozy fall flavor we love from homemade apple pie and baked it into these apple cinnamon oatmeal cookies! Perfectly soft on the inside with a light crispy crunch on the outside, apple oatmeal cookies pair amazingly well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or drizzled with our recipe for sweet apple glaze. The next time you find yourself in an apple orchard, or in the produce section, keep this recipe in mind to bring the cozy fall feels to life. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • For fuller cookies that spread less while baking, refrigerate dough between baking batches. Use a cookie scoop to make sure each cookie is the same size to help them bake more evenly.
  • Make sure the cookies are completely cool before glazing cookies. For easy cleanup, place wax paper or paper towels under the cooling rack while glazing. Once the glaze is set, store them in between sheets of wax paper to keep them from sticking together.
  • We made these cookies with an apple-flavored glaze that uses apple juice. For apple cookies with a classic milk-based glaze see our recipe for Apple-Spice-Oatmeal Cookies.
