Ingredients
  • 1½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅔ cup peeled and grated Granny smith, gala or Fuji apples
  • ½ cup toffee baking bits
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips or almond bark
  • ½ teaspoon coconut or vegetable oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mats. Set aside.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, graham cracker crumbs, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the room temperature butter until smooth and creamy. Add both sugars and continue beating at medium speed, until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix well. Add the flour mixture and continue mixing just until combined.
  4. Add the grated apple and toffee pieces and mix until combined.
  5. Using a tablespoon or a 1-inch cookie scoop, drop the dough two inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 11-12 minutes, or until set in the center. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the white chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds. Remove bowl from microwave and stir. Return chocolate chips to microwave and heat for an additional 30 seconds, or until melted and creamy. Spoon melted chocolate into a plastic zip top bag. Cut a small amount off the corner tip of one side of the plastic bag and drizzle the melted chocolate over the over cookies.
  7. Store cookies in an air tight container for up to 4 days.
