These sweet Toffee Apple Pie Cookies are loaded with candy bits and shredded apples. Fill your cookie jar with a batch of these soft apple cookies. If they last that long...
Anyone else craving something sweet today? I have some Toffee Apple Pie Cookies with your name written all over them. Come on over and we will sit and chit chat while we munch on a batch of homemade cookies.
These are the perfect fall treat to enjoy with a homemade Salted Caramel Mocha Latte. Soft bites of apple, the little taste of graham cracker, and the crunch of toffee all in one little sweet cookie will have you reaching for a second and a third apple cookie in a hurry.
And because they have fresh apples in them, I consider these a perfect breakfast food too. Don't you think they kind of look like a muffin top? Of course, thinking about muffins makes me want to make another batch of these Cinnamon Sugar Apple Donut Holes too.
Do you want to know what I liked best about these apple cookies? Well, besides the fact that I added candy to them and white chocolate drizzles to the top.
These cookies stayed soft for almost an entire week because of the apple bits. I kept them in a very tightly sealed container, and 5 days later they tasted just as good as the day I baked them.
I have a feeling that they would have stayed soft for a week or more, but since they didn't last that long I'll never know.
Although, I'm wishing I had thrown them in the freezer right away for lunches because I couldn't seem to stop eating them. Fingers crossed that one of these days I will crave things like this Strawberry Orange Spinach Salad instead of cookies.
Thank goodness for cooler weather coming and baggy sweatshirts, so I can hide my cookie chub. Am I right?
Tips for making Toffee Apple Pie Cookies:
Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat it again.
Stir together all the dry ingredients and slowly add them the butter mixture.
Use a food processor to shred some apple slices. Stir the shredded apples and toffee bits gently into the cookie dough. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes, so that the cookies do not spread too much when baking.
Using a cookie scoop, divide the dough into 24 dough balls. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes. I like to use a Silpat on my baking sheet to keep them from spreading too much.
Once the cookies are cool, drizzle the tops with some melted chocolate. You could also sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs or toffee bits on top, if you like.

So funny-- I just pinned this post and then lo & behold, I hopped over to Tip Junkie and there it is again. I guess that's a sign that I MUST make these cookies. 🙂
It is definitely a sign that these cookies need to be in your kitchen STAT:-)
These look incredible!!!
Hi! I'm a new follower! 🙂
I'd like to invite you to check out my blog- Earning-My-Cape, and to link up to my Super Link Party on Wednesdays!
I hope to see you there! 🙂
Can I use Applesauce instead of real Apples?
I know that you can substitute 1/4 c. applesauce for 1 egg. You could do that in this recipe and then just leave out the apple chunks too. I wouldn't add any more applesauce because it will affect the texture of the cookies.
These cookies sound delicious! I especially love the presentation with the baker's twine. I would love it if you would stop by and share at Lines Across. I hope to see you soon,
These are great looking cookies
I love the idea of using apples in cookies, and I'd like to try these
The apple in it helps give the cookie such a soft texture. You should definitely try it sometime.
You're so sweet to wrap that stack up for me! I might just have to make these for Grace's bake sale this week! Toffee, apples, white chocolate, graham crackers, what's not to love about these. You know I had to Pin them!
YUM!! I love anything with toffee in the recipe. Can't wait to try these. I will be pinning these. Thanks!!

You can't trick me. That's not breakfast.
yum! I've been waiting for you to post these Jocelyn! LOVE the graham crackers hiding in the dough. Toffee and apples are a combination I have yet to try in a cookie!
The graham cracker crumbs in the dough is the perfect touch...totally like eating pie! You must try toffee and apple together...best cookie ever!!!

What a great cookie! I'm SO in love with these!
Looks great! How fun that you're all doing this together!
Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel
I looooove that you used graham cracker crumbs to these cookies. Not only does that remind me of apple pie (!!) but with that added toffee twist and I'm officially drooling 🙂 and that's awesome that they stay soft a week later, though I don't think they'd ever make it that long here! Loving this Apple-themed week, girlies!
Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl
These even look super soft! LOVE! And I agree with Aimee--I'd SO buy one of your cookbooks!
You girls are the best blog friends ever...I heart all of you:-)
Cookies that are made for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack, are the right kind of cookie for ME! 😀

Lisa @ akawest

I love that you used 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs in them AND that they stayed soft a week later! A nice dose of brown sugar I find does that and these look....awesome!
I was so excited that they stayed soft for that long. And the graham cracker crumbs was just perfect!!!
Hey girl! These look so yummy. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such sweet comments. I always thought that you took the best photos of your food. They could be in magazines. LOL! Hope you are doing well. Hugs!
Thanks you are the sweetest:-) Maybe a magazine one day...my fingers are crossed!!!
