In a medium bowl stir together the flour, crumbs, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add to butter mixture and beat until combined. Stir in apple.
Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Arrange balls 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove and cool on wire racks.
