Toffee Apple Cookies

These formed part of the Twookieparty recipe collection and they were a huge hit - I understand that our Lulu launched a commando raid on the box when her Mum was up running her bath...

They aren't a crisp cookie but are soft and chewy in consistency - perfect with a glass of milk for kids.  I got both the dried apple slices and the dairy toffees in Tesco - part of their own branded range.  This quantity makes about 24 cookies

Toffee Apple Cookies

175g Butter, at room temperature
140g Caster Sugar (Golden if you have it, normal if you don't)
2 Egg Yolks
225g Self-Raising Flour
50g Ground Almonds
85g Chewy Toffees, roughly chopped
85g Dried Apple Rings, roughly chopped
2 tbsp Milk

Preheat your oven to 190c/170c Fan/Gas Mark 5 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
Chop up your toffees and apple slices into smallish pieces

Using an electric whisk or food processor, beat the butter & sugar until pale & creamy.

Stir in the egg yolks, ground almonds, toffees, dried apple chunks & flour.  Mix well together and roll into walnut-sized balls, placing on the baking sheets.

Brush with milk & bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.  Leave to firm on the sheet for 5 minutes & then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
