Ever had an Apple cider donut? I either totally missed them while growing up, or it’s just become a recent trend, but I had my first only one a few years ago. And wow! Are they good 🙌🏻 Ready to experience that in cookie form?

These Apple Cider Snockerdoodles are soft, chewy, EASY to make, and initially taste like a snickerdoodle until you get hit with a big ol’ taste of Fall & Apple goodness. Which is simply achieved by replacing some of them sugar with the powdered apple cider drink mix you can find at most grocery stores this time of year.

I hope this becomes a fall staple at your house- I know it will be at mine!

  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 0.74 Oz packets of Apple Cider Drink mix (about one heaping 1/4 cup)
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add 1 cup of brown sugar, 3 0.74 Oz packets of Apple Cider Drink mix (about one heaping 1/4 cup) , and the 1 cup of the softened butter to a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until fluffy.
Add in 1 egg and 2 tsp vanilla and mix together. Then add the 2 cup of All-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp of baking powder, 1/2 tsp of baking soda, and 1/4 tsp of salt. Beat until just combined.
In a small bowl, mix the 2 Tbsp of Brown Sugar, 2 Tbsp of sugar, and 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon. Scoop each cookie onto a greased baking sheet (it should make about 30 medium cookies), then roll them into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Do not press down- keep it in a ball.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, then let them sit on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.
