  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 brown sugar, packed
  • 12 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 egg plus 1 yolk
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granny smith apples, chopped (about 2 apples)
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer, cream together sugar and softened butter. Add eggs and vanilla extract mixing until combined.
  4. Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and continue mixing on medium speed, until cookie dough begins to form. Turn mixer off and gently fold in chopped apples by hand.
  5. Roll dough into 2 tablespoon sized balls of dough. Arrange dough on prepared cookie sheets, giving them room to spread while baking.
  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes (cookies should look slightly undercooked). Allow to cool completely on cookie sheets before removing. Store in airtight container.
