Slightly crisp cookie made with apples instead of the traditional raisins. Also tastes great if you omit the apples and use french-vanilla coffee-mate!
Apple Oatmeal Cookies with Caramel Icing
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cups of diced apple
1 stick of butter
5 Tbsp Caramel flavored coffee creamer
1 tsp Vanilla
4 cups Powdered Sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, white sugar and brown sugar. Mix in the egg and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter until well blended. Mix in the oats and diced apples. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are lightly browned.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan.
Add creamer. Stir well.
Remove from heat and slowly add powdered sugar and mix well.
