Apple Doodles

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Alison

Holiday cookies that are apple and cinnamon flavored. The recipe came from a Taste of Home book and made 4 dozen--2 dozen of which I have eaten in the last hour. This definitely has a lot of cinnamon. If you do not like cinnamon, I would skimp on the amount. Mine only took 11 minutes to cook.

these are pretty good, but, i tasted no cinnamon even with the huge amount the recipe called for. maybe i'll try adding more next time, but, this makes me feel like the cookie is a little healthier than a typical overly sweet one
