My little brother is deploying to Afghanistan, so I’m re-starting the 52 Cookies Project! Here’s my new recipe for apple butterscotch cookies! I started with a super basic cookie dough recipe and added in finely diced honeycrisp apples (my husband’s favorites) and some butterscotch chips. It makes about 3 dozen cookies. As always, to get those beautiful, perfectly round cookie dough balls I use this delightful cookie scoop.

  1. I just made these on sunday 11/5/17, i find that they bake into really thin cookies. I had to bake the cookies for 12 minutes so they would somewhat hold their shape. Should these be refrigerated before baking? Plus the cookies are very very soft, almost too soft. too much corn syrup?
    Also, you cannot put these in a container as they will break apart from being too soft. Any Suggestions??
