MorgenStund' Baked Apple Cookies

50 g hazelnuts or almonds, chopped
2 medium apples
Lemon juice
130 g softened butter
35 g sugar
1 egg
145 g MorgenStund' (do not cook)
1 tsp baking powder
60 g wholemeal spelt flour
1 heaping tablespoon baking cocoa
25 g raisins
Cinnamon to taste

Preheat the oven to 180 °C / 355 F (top / bottom heat). Line a baking sheet with baking paper.

Wash and core apples, dice finely without removing the peel and sprinkle with a little lemon juice.

Heat a teaspoon of butter in a frying pan and sauté the apples with the nuts and cinnamon for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool down and add the raisins.

Beat the remaining butter and sugar with a hand mixer until fluffy. Stir in the egg. Now add MorgenStund', flour and baking powder and mix until evenly blended.

Divide the dough in half and mix the baking cocoa into one half. Finally, incorporate the apple-nut-raisin mixture into both halves of the dough and add cinnamon to taste.

With floured hands, form flat cookies and place on baking sheet. If the dough is too moist, add a little MorgenStund' or flour.

Bake at 180° C / 355 F for about 25-30 minutes. Then allow to cool on a cooling rack.
