This came to my inbox today, and since it's almost apple season here in the Northeastern US I thought I'd share it! The descriptions says, "This is a moist and cake like, spicy, nutty, apple cookie." I can't wait to try it! The recipe is from Aunt Mikie at Allrecipes.com, although I added my own touches. If you make it with the soy milk and unsalted margarine it's lactose-free!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup unsalted margarine, softened
- 1 1⁄2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup chopped apple
- 1 cup raisins
- 2⁄3 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk or 1 tablespoon soymilk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy; mix in sugar and egg.
- Stir in flour mixture, and mix thoroughly; fold in nuts, apples, and raisins.
- Drop by rounded teaspoon onto prepared cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.
- Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
- Cool on wire rack.
- In a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar with milk to make a thin glaze; drizzle over cooled cookies.
These cookies were quick & easy to make! I omitted the yucky walnuts & increased the raisins & apples to compensate. I used an air bake cookie sheet & they took 15 minutes. Thanx Kree!
I was looking for a recipe similar to a cookie that is sold in a local bakery. This recipe is very close. I used pecans instead of walnuts, because I had the pecans on hand. they were so good eaten still warm from the oven.
