There's a great orchard taste to our Fresh Apple Cookies, 'cause they're made with fresh apples, crunchy walnuts, and cinnamon-nutmeg spices. Bake these cookies up in the fall and serve them with a tall glass of milk!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 1/3 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons milk, divided
  • 2 cups peeled, cored, and finely chopped apples, any variety
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, cream the shortening, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and egg. Add the flour and baking soda; mix well. Stir in the 1/4 cup milk until well blended. Stir in the apples and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets.
     
  3.  Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
     
  4. In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and remaining milk; mix until smooth.
     
  5. Remove cookies from baking sheets and let cool. Drizzle with glaze.

     
Notes

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