I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Apple Cranberry Cookie Cups

Sweet and tart apple cranberry filling in a soft and chewy oatmeal cookie crust.  And they are easy as pie to make!

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups brown sugar, divided
3/4 cup white sugar, divided
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1 3/4 cups oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsps butter
4 apples, peeled and finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1 1/2 tsps cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl blend the butter together with 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla. In another bowl combine the flour, oats, baking powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and salt and add to the large bowl. Combine well.
Using a medium scoop place batter in greased muffin tins.

Using a wet hand gently flatten the ball of batter.

Bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes. Immediately, while they are still warm, make indentations in the center using the bottom of a buttered shot glass. Cool 10-15 minutes then run a thin knife around each cookie cup and remove from the pan to cool completely.

Meanwhile (or if you like the day before like I did) prepare the filling. Melt 2 tbsps butter in a skillet. Add the apples and cranberries and cook until the apples are tender. Add the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon and stir well. Cook until thickened and spoon into cooled cookie cups.

You can add about 2 heaping tsps of filling per cup.

Makes 15
