Just beat together all of the ingredients in the mixer except for the apples. Save those for last. Then, just fold them into the completed cookie dough.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on to a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are golden brown.
You will end up with these heavenly chewy cookies with bites of delicious apple inside! Enjoy with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. My favorite way might be with a small bowl of vanilla ice cream! YUM!
