Thanks, April. I'm so glad you liked them. There are only a few left!


I can cross two more cookies off my list. I told my mom about your cookies and she made the pumpkin cream cheese ones, and I begged her to send me some in the mail, and I got them today. They'd flattened a bit from the mailing, but were still very tasty. I got the ingredients to try the recipe out myself.

And today I made the mulled apple cider cookies. They did make the house smell great! And boy did they take a long time. My apple cider took longer than 25 min to simmer down, and by the time I was about to combine all the ingredients, I realized I didn't have enough time to make them before I had to leave. So I left it for 7 hours later when I got home, and was afraid that the diced apples would be funky, but decided to go for it anyway. And my creamables and wet ingredients mixed together looked absolutely nothing like what you had pictured, so I was really afraid I'm messed it up. The dough was VERY moist, so I added a bit extra oatmeal thinking that there was no way that was normal. However, they turned out to be incredible! I will be making them again for a party later on in the month. Can't wait to try the new cranberry one.


Wow, you just made me believe in blogs so much. I've been looking for an apple cider cookie recipe for a few weeks, and you saved me. I want to make these tonight! Thank you, thank you!

Thanks, Hallie! I hope you like the recipe. :-)

Hi, Em. I think the apples got juicy on you and made the dough a little too wet. If that happens, you can always put the dough in the fridge for about an hour to firm it up. Also: use a wide, flat pan with a big surface area to reduce the cider. It will boil down and evaporate faster than if you use a deep pot with a small opening.

I stumbled upon this blog because I was searching for apple cider & oatmeal cookies. Normally what I do when I get a vision is find a recipe that's similar to what I want and tweek it, but this was exactly what I was looking for, I'm not changing a thing. I am giving this a try today for the first time, right now my cider is reducing and I can't believe how good it smells in the house. I hope this works out because I'm supposed to bring them to a party tonight.... Talk about waiting till the last minute!

I can confirm that these are just as delicious when a half cup of reduced Christmas Wassail is used in lieu of the half cup of reduced mulled cider. These were a huge hit!


Hi there! I'm having trouble with this one....Do I boil tea bags in 3 cups of water and simmer the water with the tea bags until it reduces to 1/2 cup (if so, how many tea bags)? Or like the sweater weather cookies put the actual contents into the batter - which seems really odd to me!

Thank you! I LOVE, LOVE your recipes!
