If you want to give your teacher something nice on your first day of school, these deliciously cute apple cookies are a great gift. A fun take on the traditional red apple fruit, these homemade apple cookies look just like the real thing.
To make these kitschy apple cookies begin by making a sugar cookie dough from butter, sugar and eggs. Add a large amount of red food coloring to replicate the candied bright red color of traditional apples. When you've achieved the color you want, roll the dough into tiny little balls and dip the balls into red sprinkles. Bake the cookies in a tiny muffin tin so that they'll come out with an angular shape that resembles a real apple. Add a piece of pretzel as the apple stem and a green sugar fondant leaf and you're ready to go.
