We wish essentially the most intense apple taste, requiring us to boil it as a lot as attainable whereas nonetheless permitting it to stay a liquid, however because it cools it may possibly agency up. If it cools fully it can grow to be a really thick caramel/sweet that may be laborious to combine into the cookie dough, which is why lukewarm temperature works greatest. If you wish to make the syrup forward you may reheat it and permit it to chill barely, so it can combine into the dough simply. To reheat within the microwave warmth at 20 seconds increments, stirring after every till it’s the consistency of molasses or honey.

Cookie Troubleshooting

  • If the cookies are misshapen after they come out of the oven, use a spatula to kind them again into excellent circles. This works solely after they first come out and haven’t cooled. I do that with so many cookies in the event that they unfold humorous. You’ll have bakery excellent cookies each time!
  • I at all times bake my cookies for 1 minutes LESS than the recipe requires to test how they’re baking. Ovens can bake inconsistently and oven temperatures can range, so checking them a little bit earlier than they’re performed will help stop over or below baking!
  • Rotate your pan. So many ovens can warmth increased within the again than the entrance, so it can by no means harm to rotate your pan midway by means of baking. 
  • If you happen to choose an additional comfortable cookie, underbake for 1 – 2 minutes. The facilities will nonetheless be comfortable, however enable them to chill on the baking sheet for five minutes earlier than transferring them to a wire rack to chill fully.

Notes

*The diminished apple cider will thicken considerably because it cools. Attaining essentially the most intense apple taste requires boiling the cider down as a lot as attainable. However because the diminished syrup cools it may possibly agency as much as a stiff gel, which may be laborious to combine evenly into the dough. So I like to ensure the cider discount is lukewarm when mixing in, guaranteeing it can incorporate evenly, much like the identical consistency as molasses. If you wish to make the syrup forward it it cools an excessive amount of earlier than use, you may reheat it within the microwave and permit it to chill barely. I like to recommend heating it in 20 second intervals, stirring after every.
