Author: 
Serves: yields 3 dozen
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 apples, cored and shredded
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup hot water
Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter and sugars and cream together until smooth. Add the apples and mix well to combine.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, oats, baking soda and salt. With the stand mixer running on its lowest speed, add the flour mixture a little at a time until fully incorporated.
  4. Add the hot water to the stand mixer and mix on low until smooth.
  5. Use a medium cookie scoop, or two tablespoons, to drop the cookie dough in mounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden.
  7. Transfer cookies to a cooking rack and let cool completely.
  8. To make the glaze: Stir together the glaze ingredients. Drizzle on completely cooled cookies and let sit for at least 30 minutes to set. For easy cleanup, set the cooling rack on top of a parchment lined baking sheet before glazing.
