Apple Snickerdoodles #AppleWeek #Sponsored

 This post is sponsored in conjunction with #AppleWeek. I received complimentary product from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Apple SnickerdoodlesSnickerdoodles are my Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf's favorite cookies. So, it was easy to get him to help me make them. You can use your favorite snickerdoodle recipe; the only tweak we really made: reduce the butter as you're adding moisture with the shredded apple from event sponsor Envy Apples. We also used organic vanilla bean paste from Taylor & Colledge and cane sugar from Bob's Red Mill. Gotta love these generous sponsors* who sent the bloggers products to use in their recipe creations.
7 T softened butter 1 C cane sugar + 4 T for rolling (prefer Bob's Red Mill) 1 egg  1 apple, peeled, cored, and grated (prefer Envy) 1 t pure vanilla paste (prefer Taylor & Colledge) 1/2 t ground cinnamon + 2 T for rolling 1/4 t ground cardamom 1/4 t ground nutmeg 3 C flour 1 t baking soda 1/2 t baking powder Also needed: baking sheet, silicone mat or parchment paper, scoop 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, blend together 4 T sugar and 2 T ground cinnamon for rolling.
In a small mixing bowl, blend together flour, baking soda, baking powder, 1/2 t ground cinnamon, 1/4 t ground cardamom, and 1/4 t ground nutmeg. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until lightened and fluffy. Beat in egg, shredded apples, and pure vanilla paste.
Gradually blend in the flour mixture until you have a smooth dough. Here you can use a scoop which is much easier...or you can roll walnut-sized balls with your hands. 

Place the dough balls in the cinnamon mixture and roll to coat completely.

Place onto prepared cookie sheets. 

Bake for 10 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven - or until golden. If you prefer more crunchy cookies, bake for a minute or two longer. 

Let cool for a few minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy! For one dozen, D rolled the baked cookies in the leftover cinnamon-sugar for extra flavor. It was delicious.
