Ingredients

Apple Filling

  • 2 medium granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and finely diced
  • 1/4 cup (50g) brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

  • 1 cup (2 sticks, 226g) unsalted butter, softened but not melted
  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups (352g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions

Apple Filling

  1. In a medium bowl combine diced apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter. Stir to combine and set aside.

Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare three cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper or Silpat.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a hand-held mixer on the highest setting) cream together butter and sugar. (about 2-3 minutes)
  3. Add in the eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. Mix until fully incorporated.
  4. With the mixer on low (or off) add in the flour, cream of tartar, soda, and salt.
  5. Using a 1-tablespoon scoop, scoop out rounded balls. Make a well in the center and place a heaping teaspoon of the apple mixture inside. (Avoid the liquid in the bowl.) Form the rest of the cookie around the apple filling and place them close together on one of the cookie sheets.

Cinnamon Sugar

  1. Mix the 3 tablespoons of sugar and the cinnamon in a wide bowl. I like to use a fork but a small whisk also works.

Assembly

  1. Roll balls of dough in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.

  2. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Carefully remove immediately from baking sheets and place on a cooling rack.
