Have a few extra apples left over? Are they starting to get soft? Here's a great way to use them up and still bring fresh orchard taste to each and every cookie.
What You'll Need:
- 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
- 1 1/3 cups firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 cups peeled, cored, and finely chopped apples, any variety
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons milk
What To Do:
- Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.
- In a large bowl, cream the shortening, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and egg. Add the flour and baking soda, mixing well. Stir in the 1/4 cup milk until well blended. Stir in the apples and nuts.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets that have been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 11 to 14 minutes or until golden.
- While baking, in a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients (the confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla extract, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 3 tablespoons milk) and mix to a smooth consistency for glaze.
- Remove cookies from the cookie sheets and, while still hot, spread with the vanilla glaze.
Makes about 4 dozen.
Cool before wrapping so that the cookies won't stick to each other.
