Here's the recipe for my Mulled Apple Cider Cookies in process.
Reduce the apple cider. It looks kind of funky but tastes--and smells--like heaven.
Cream the creamables. A stick of butter and a 1/2 cup each of white and dark brown sugar.
Combine the wet ingredients. Make sure the reduced apple cider is cool before you add the egg yolk.
Add the wet ingredients to the creamables. Mix 'n mingle.
Cut the apples. I used an alligator chopper to make a 1/4" dice. Then combine the dry ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients to the combined creamables and wet ingredients.
Scoop, sugar, and bake the cookies. Who needs potpourri or scented candles when you've got the real thing?
