Snack Attack! Apple Cookies

Old-Fashioned Apple Cookie Recipe

Today I had a snack attack, so I decided to make some cookies.  I had walnuts in the freezer from Christmas time baking and apples in the root cellar, so I dug out a drop apple cookie recipe.  This makes a crisp on the outside and soft on the inside cookie.  Yummy!  Joe and I had to try some out as soon as they were out of the oven.

Here’s the recipe.

Old-Fashioned Apple Cookies

1/2 cup butter                                         1 & 1/2 cups brown sugar (pack it down)

1 egg                                                           1/4 cup milk

2 cups flour                                              1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt                                                   1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp. cloves                                          1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 cup chopped apples                             1 cup chopped nuts

1 cup raisins

Measure out the flour, salt, baking soda, and spices and set them aside.   Measure and chop the nuts.  Set aside with the raisins in a small bowl.  Peel 1-2 apples, depending on their size.  Core them, slice in thin slices, then chop the slices.  Set aside.  Cream the butter and sugar together.  (Use a mixer or beat with a spoon.)  Add the egg and milk.  Beat again.

Stir in the apples, nuts, raisins, and half of the flour mixture.  Beat.  Add the second half of the flour mixture and beat again.  Drop by heaping tablespoons on a greased coolie sheet.  Bake at 375F for 10 to 12 minutes.  You want them nicely browned.  Let them cool slightly on the cookie sheet, then while still warm transfer to a rack to cool.  (Snatch one or two to eat!)    You can put an icing glaze on them, if you want.  I didn’t bother.

Glaze:  (optional)

1 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar                       1 tablespoon melted butter

1/4 tsp. vanilla                                                1/8 tsp. salt

2 & 1/2 tbsp. cream

Mix all the glaze ingredients together and put on cookies while still warm.
