Another fabulous fall flavor, apple cider! There’s always a little nostalgia with cider, visiting the orchards in he fall, warm cider on a cold day…so good!
These cookies can be made a few different ways. I tried several versions before adapting my own. I found that incorporating cider itself into the dough didn’t transfer enough of that yummy apple flavor, and even when boiled down it made the cookie dough loose and the cookies would spread too much. So I thought long and hard and came up with using instant spiced cider! It worked like a charm great flavor and texture!
Here’s what you’ll need!
1c softened butter
1/2c granulated sugar
2 Tbsp spiced cider mix
1 tsp vanilla
2 c all purpose flour
2-3tbsp sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 350F. Blend together butter, sugar, cider mix and vanilla. Add salt and Flour mix well. Roll into balls, roll that in sugar and flatten onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10minites or until edges are browned.
While the cookies bake make the glaze.
1Tbsp cider mix
1c. Powdered sugar
Mix until thin glaze consistency. Pour into cookies after you remove them from the oven.
