Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Since Fall is right around the corner, I thought sharing these cookies would be great today.

These are one of my favorite recipes since I love cookies and I love apples in my desserts. I`ve made these cookies using Joy`s recipe several times now and I just LOVE these cookies. Definitely a keeper! These cookies are soft, not those hard and crunchy types. 

These are perfect for fall baking with the apple and cinnamon combination.  Plus, this season is where you see apple and pumpkin desserts galore~ 

Also, this is just the beginning of apple recipes I`ll be sharing! I don`t really like eating apples, but I LOVE them in baked goods. It`s a good way to make make myself eat apples. LOL. So, I hope you love baked apple goodies as well and won`t get tired of seeing them everywhere! Haha~

I didn`t change anything with this recipe except for minor things, because I love it as it is! Joy knows her stuff! So linked to her site for directions, but I listed the materials needed and the precise ingredients I used to make mine. ;)

A note & suggestion: I like eating these cold. Yup, I put them in the fridge and eat it cold. It`s wonderful both cold and at room temperature! Just try it if you don`t believe me. Hehe.
