  • Oven
  • Bowl
  • baking sheet
  • chef knife to dice apple
  • cutting board


  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Cup diced apples about 1/4 inch, I used fuji
  • 1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar or sanding sugar for a nice crunch on the outsides of the cookie


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream butter and sugars until mixed well. Add egg and vanilla mixing until well combined. Stir in peanut butter and diced apples. Slowly mix in the flour, baking soda and salt until dough forms, then stir in white chocolate chips until just combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough, roll into sugar then place onto baking sheet. With tines of a fork, press down slightly making an X on top of each cookie. Bake for 10-12 minutes, cookies should look somewhat soft inside when you take them out. Let cool for 15 minutes before transferring to a serving plate.
