This week I did something a little different I created a really scrumptious cookie, and I included a video for you to watch at the bottom of the post. ; )

A Good Deal

I came up with the idea for Apple Pie Cookies with chocolate chips when I was at Rite Aid and saw that chocolate chip cookie mix was only 99 cents.  When I saw that, I snagged it right away.  Anything below $1.00 for cookie mix is a good buy to me. When I went to make the cookies I thought I should experiment a bit. I love to experiment in the kitchen, especially when I can use up things I already have on hand.  I found an apple and inspiration struck.  I decided to make Apple Pie Cookies with Chocolate Chips!

Apple Pie Chocolate Chip Cookies

apple pie cookies with chocolate chipsI made the cookies by following the instructions on the package; BUT I took the apple, cut it up into small chucks and sauteed them in a grill pan.  I cooked the apple bits with 1 tbs of butter, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and a dash of cinnamon for about 10 minutes – until it was nice and soft.

Final Cost: Less the $2.00 for 18 Cookies

The HUBBY LOVED THEM! Next time I make them I will add a extra apple for more of a punch.
