For the Cookies:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 medium apple, cored, peeled, diced small
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

For the Apple Cider Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider


  1. Adjust the oven racks to the middle position and heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, toss diced apples and lemon juice together; set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat at medium speed until combined, about 30 seconds. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds, scraping down the bowl as needed. Fold in apples and walnuts with a rubber spatula.
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake one sheet at a time, 10 to 13 minutes, or until the bottoms are a light golden color.
  6. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack and let the cookies cool on the sheet for 5 minutes then using a wide metal spatula, transfer the cookies to the rack to cool completely.
  7. To make apple cider glaze, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar and apple cider. Drizzle over cookies.
