Googie’s Kitchen presents Apple, Pecan and Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits or Cookies

Apple, Pecan and Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits or Cookies

‘Coookies’ are always a hit in our house. When I mention to my husband Howard and son Ted that I will be baking biscuits/cookies I always get a positive response. Howard normally asks if they will be my Gingernut Biscuits. I get the impression he really enjoys them. Ted, on the other hand, will normally roll his eyes at the mention of gingernuts. He enjoys them too but I don’t think they are his favourites.

To be honest, I’m not sure which of the biscuits make are his favourites. We are working on that one! Therefore while Ted decides I keep baking my new ideas. This year we had a bumper harvest of apples from our little apple tree so I decided to add the apples to biscuits. I have never tried to add apples to a biscuit before but I’m so please I did. The cookies were so yummy I nearly gobble the lot. We love these biscuits and we hope you enjoy them too. Below is a video and recipe for you.

Apple, Pecan and Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits/Cookies

Apple, Pecan and Sweet Cinnamon Biscuits/Cookies were a huge hit. We took them on a picnic we had at the weekend with friends and they enjoyed them as well. They are a great lunchbox filler or morning or afternoon snack. Howard and Ted often enjoy them as an after dinner treat too. They would make a really lovely present for a friend or relative as well. That’s if you can bear to give them away. However you decide to eat these biscuits, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
