Ingredients

Apple Jacks
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup apple chopped (I would small dice 1 small-medium apple)
1/2 to 3/4 cup Kraft Carmel bits or Heath Baking bits (optional)


Preheat oven to 350.


Line baking sheet with Parchment or lightly spray with PAM.


In a large bowl stir together the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.


Beat the butter with a mixer and add the sugar, vanilla and egg and beat until light and fluffy. Add the flour mixture and stir to combine.


Fold in the apple pieces (and any other add-ins).


Drop the dough onto baking sheet about 2 inches apart (these spread a bit).


Bake for 9-12 minutes or until light brown and edges are set. Allow to cool slightly on baking sheet and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.


NOTE: *DO NOT store completely covered or they will be very very soft and not hold up well due to the moisture in the apples. I find storing loosely covered in the fridge helps them keep their texture, however then the Caramel Bits get hard. I am thinking Toffee Chips might be a better addition next time. These really are best the day you bake, especially after they have cooled a bit but are still warm!

Notes

Found on a food blog that I don't remember, haven't tried it yet

You call them Apple Jacks and you include that name with the ingredients. Is that coincidental or do they really take that cereal? They sound good, which ever the answer is!
