A cross between a snickerdoodle and a sugar cookie, these Apple Butter Cookies are a delightful Fall treat. We've baked the sweet and spicy flavor of apple butter directly into this recipe. These soft and chewy cookies can be made with store-bought apple butter, or you can make your own with our homemade Cider Apple Butter recipe.

Plan For

Chill dough 2 hours

Yield :
16 cookies


*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. 
  2. Cream together butter, apple butter, and sugar.
  3. Mix in sugar, egg, and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine cinnamon, flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. 
  5. Slowly add dry ingredients to butter mixture. Mix until dough forms. 
  6. Place into fridge and chill for 2 hours.  
  7. Using a tablespoon to portion out cookies, roll cookies into a ball and roll each ball in cinnamon sugar. 
  8. Place cookies onto ungreased baking sheet.
  9. Bake 13 minutes. Move baked cookies to wire rack to cool.
