Toffee Apple Cookies

makes 21...

125g butter
200g sugar
1 egg
200g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
couple of handfuls of dried apple rings

approx 12 toffees and /or fudges

Cream the butter and sugar, add the egg and flour/cinnamon/nutmeg/bicarb

Chop the dried apple into small pieces

mix everything together.

Take teaspoonfuls of the mixture and roll into balls. place 6 on a baking sheet.

Flatten with the palm of your hand and using a spoon make a dent in the middle.

Melt the toffees and or fudge. I used 12 toffees that were going soft in the cupboard and threw in about 4 pieces of fudge for good measure. You could use either or both, soft toffees are better as when these set you don't want to break your teeth on them.

fill each dent with a dollop of toffee/fudge mix.

Bake gas number 4 for around 12 minutes.

leave them to cool on the tray, if you try to lift them hot the toffee middles will fall out lol

I found the best way to get them off the tray was to twist them off in a circle.

Perfect with a cuppa.
