“ Brand: The Biscuit Collection / Type: Biscuits „
Im not sure where my mom got these from but a packet appeared in the kitchen cupboard the other day and I decided to try a few with a nice cuppa tea, it had been a very long day lol. I wasnt sure what these were going to taste like because I didnt think that a biscuit could have all the flavours of a proper apple pie but shockingly in this case I was proven wrong.
(After much, much research!)
10 Cookies Per Packet
So thats great value for money in my opinion.
I cant find the exact nutritional values for these cookies but I assume they arent great. No cookie is going to be good for you right? So I recommend them as a treat but not an every day snack.
These cookies really are yummy. They have that crumbly yet chewy texture that you get with more expensive and homemade cookies and they taste like they should be a lot more expensive than they actually are. I couldnt believe how much these taste like apple pie, the biscuit texture provides a similar taste to what pastry would and the chunks of apple are really tasty. These have a lovely cinnamon aftertaste which makes it taste even more like a real apple pie but I think they got the mixture of flavours just right. The apple chunks actually taste really fresh and have a lovely sweet yet sour edge to them, basically they are proper yummy. Both the flavours of the cinnamon and the apple work really well together and each flavour although they are very different bring the flavours out in the other ingredient, if that makes any sense.
These cookies are quite sweet but I wouldnt say they are overpowering at all they are just sweet, chewy & chunky but best of all they are yummy. I had two of these cookies with a cup of tea and it actually filled me up so they are great for a sort of bed time snack. As I said before though I think they should be eaten in moderation and not everyday.
Im going to ask my mom to stock up on these again because they were certainly a winner with me. And when I went back to get two a few hours ago they had disappeared so Im assuming they were a winner with everyone else as well. I highly recommend them because for 89p you cant really complain because they taste great and they taste like they should be over twice that price.
Thanks For Reading

I got a pack of these Apple Pie Cookies in Aldi last week and they surprised me at how yummy they were because I'm not mad keen on Aldi food. They was 89p and you get 10 chunky cookies for that, they're not as big as they're made out on the packet but are still a very good size.
The cookies are crunchy and crumbly, they taste like they're worth a lot more than the price I paid and have a similar texture to the home made American style cookies my aunt makes.
They smell delish, my sister said they smell like Xmas and they do a bit because the cookies have got a yummy cinnamon spicy smell. I wouldn't say you can smell the apple in them but there's a sweetness underneath the spices that makes you think of apple pies.
That describes the taste too. When I brought them I was expecting them to have a strong apple flavour and was a bit disappointed at first. Then I thought about it though and realised that apple pies don't taste of pure apple and have got all the other flavours mixed in like the spices and pastry.
When I got that into my head I realised that these cookies DO taste like apple pie. The cinnamon doesn't taste as strong as it smells but is deffo there in the aftertaste and brings the apple flavour out good. The cookies are just sweet enough, they're not mega sugary but have got a delish sweet flavour that goes sooooooo nice with the apple and cinnamon.
They don't dunk very well I don't think. It's not that the biscuits fall apart or anything, just that the spicy apple flavour doesn't go very good with tea or coffee!
You should get a pack of these cookies to try because they're delish and quite cheap, we're going back tomorrow to get a few packs in for Xmas because Aldi quite often run out of the good stuff so my mum wants to get in early! lol
We're on holiday this week, and that means an abundance of biscuits, sweets, and other yummy stuff, finding its way into our holiday villa with the repeated mantra "well, we ARE on holiday" as we pick up each packet in the shop on site.....
We picked up a pack of these apple pie cookies as they were on offer - £1.19 per pack or 2 for £2.....well, we ARE on holiday, after all. We have never tried them before, but the picture on the packet looked good enough to eat. A definite point there to the marketing department at the cookie-makers!
These come in a pack containing 10 rectangular cookies, so 10p each. The cookies are not huge, by any stretch of the imagination, but at an inch and a half by about two and a half inches, they are not miniscule either.
The packet says that they are "The famous Apple Strudel recipe". Well, I don't know about any famous recipe, but I love apple strudel, so this sold it to me.
As soon as you open the packet, you can immediately smell the spices. The ingredients don't mention names, only numbers but I would hazard a guess at it being cinnamon because it mentions cinnamon on the front of the packet. Clearer ingredients listed on the reverse would be nice!
Anyway the smell is most welcoming - warm and apple pie-like, which I suppose is exactly what the manufacturers are aiming for.
The cookies have a nice crunch to them, but thankfully have a bit of a chewiness about them. I much prefer chewy, almost undercooked, textures to my cookies, and these have just about got that, so I am happy. The apple is a definite flavour, with real "bits" of the fruit apparent as you tuck in. Raisins are also noticeable, certainly in terms of what you can see, but not so much in what you can taste.
As I was just tucking into another cookie (well, I AM on holiday, after all!), I found myself thinking that it reminded me a little of fig rolls.....that delicious, more-ish feeling that I get when I open a pack of them too.
The whole cookie is very successful in giving the feel of apple pie, or apple strudel. All you need now is a custard flavoured cookie to eat alongside it! I liked the fact that these cookies were different from your normal biscuits or cookies - it is not often you get fruit flavoured cookies, rather than chocolate based ones.
All in all, I would certainly buy these cookies again - the taste and texture are more than good enough for me. The only thing I would like is to know a bit more about the ingredients, as the list on the back of the packet is a little sketchy. Also, there are no nutritional values listed anywhere. This might not be a problem, on the basis that they are biscuits, so you know they are going to contain calories, but if you are watching your calorie intake, you might want to know how many calories/points/syns to knock off your daily total.
On the other hand......if no calories are listed, perhaps they are calorie free........?
