Soft Apple Cider Cookies

So I wanted to make some cookies and #SundaySupper is having a Halloween party. I didn’t want weird coloured cookies or something kitschy. I know, I save that for every other day. Instead I decided to grow up a bit (just today) and make some cookies. Adult (but booze free) cookies.

While these soft apple cider cookies are tasty on their own they just sing with a bit of frosting. Apples inside the cookies keep them quite soft, I’d keep them in the fridge if you plan on having them around for a few days because of the moisture from the apples as well as the frosting. The apple cider is used in both the cookies and the frosting. It just adds that warmth to the whole treat.
