Apple Cookie

 

Quick, easy and delicious are three key words I’d like to use for my recipes. Not that I always succeed in that nor do I want to stick to it at all costs, but usually I’m doing allright. Also with this cookie

What I wanted to achieve with figuring out this apple cookie has been reasonably successful. My idea was to create something like an apple pie with raisins and my aim was to get the structure slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I believe both objectives have been pretty fruitful. Furthermore a cookie that can equal an apple pie should have the taste as such of course. In that respect I can say almost with certainty that this led to a great achievement. The pieces of apple are fruity and sweet and have a nice bite, the raisins with the hint of cinnamon that I’ve added, deliver that dynamic touch which makes an apple pie typical in taste.

A mini apple pie in the form of a cookie with a delicious bite and a strong drawing attention when offered. Basically, you can say a delicacy with a smile. Quick, easy and delicious; three keywords that do exactly what they’re expected to do.
