Ginger and apple are two of my absolute favorite ingredients in fall recipes. They just make me think of crunching leaves and crisp mornings.  Add in a bit of cinnamon and you just can't put these down. Ever.

My son Levi's favorite cookie is my soft Ginger cookies.

He'll eat those by the pocketful if I let him. And yes, he has been known to try to fill his pockets without detection! The recipe below is similar to my traditional Ginger cookies adapted a bit to make allowances for the liquid that chopped apples add to the dough.  I know that adding apples doesn't make these healthy, but it does make me feel at least a bit better about making them!

Check the FB Live tutorial of these cookies:

I am a giant fan of Granny Smith apples but use YOUR favorite. If you choose an apple with a less-than-crunchy skin...peel it before chopping. And better yet...head out to a local apple orchard and pick the apples for your cookies! Nothing beats picking your own apples. Other than eating them, that is!
