Whilst sitting around watching TV the other day, I came across an episode of Jamie Oliver’s 5 Ingredients – Quick and Easy Food Recipes and I couldn’t help but to tune in and be inspired with how quickly and easily he manages to transform a handful of basic ingredients in to something utterly mouth-watering and delectable.
This, one such recipe caught my eye and it was the Apple Crumble Cookies. I mean, who doesn’t love Apple Crumble and if you can capture all that flavour in a small little cookie, them I’m down for giving that a crack and it gives me a reason to try out my new food processor as well…win, win.
I have to admit that making these cookies took me on a journey back to my childhood.
I recall when I was somewhere between 8 and 12 and my mum would make up a slice or biscuits for the week on a Saturday afternoon. I would sit on the bench-top next to her mixer and add the ingredients when allowed, or simply watch her work away, all whilst waiting for the best part…licking the beater and the bowl. Surely every kid looks forward to this part…mmm, drool, drool.
These biscuits really are homely, old style home-cooking at it’s best.
What’s great about them? They are super fast to make and the dried apple gives it this beautiful sweetness and softness with a gorgeous little crumble on top that just makes you say…pass me another one!
If you would like to try these out for yourself and, I certainly can’t recommend them enough, (stuffing yet another cookie in my mouth), then head on over to Jamie Oliver’s Apple Crumble Cookies and don’t forget to come back and tell me your thoughts on them in the comments section below.
