Fresh Apple Cookies

COOK TIME
15 Min

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:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.

  2. 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.

  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets that have been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 11 to 14 minutes or until golden.

  4. 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.

  5. Remove cookies from the cookie sheets and, while still hot, spread with the vanilla glaze.

    Makes about 4 dozen.
Notes

Cool before wrapping so that the cookies won't stick to each other.
