Apple Oatmeal Cookies

My first cooking attempt in the Full-Time Training. And to add that extra touch of trainingness, I even used the sack lunch apples!
1 1/4 C diced apples I used a green apple
6 T unsalted butter
1 ¾ C old fashioned oats
1 ½ t ground cinnamon

1 C all-purpose flour
¼ t baking powder
¼ t baking soda
½ t salt

1 ¼ C packed light brown sugar (the recipe calls for 1 ½ C but I thought it was too sweet)
1 large egg
2 t vanilla extract
Preheat 350 degrees. Prepare 2 parchment lined baking sheets

Toast Oats: Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook oats, stirring constantly, until just golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in cinnamon and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds; let cool.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.

In a large bowl, whisk sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the apples, oat mixture, flour until just combined.

Roll 2 T dough and place 2” apart. Gently press balls with wet fingers until ½” thick. Bake cookies until edges are light golden and centers are just set, about 13-16 minutes, switching and rotating baking sheets halfway through baking.

Cool 10 minutes on sheets, then transfer to wire rack.

Makes 20-24 Cookies
