These are very yommy and different from most cookies. They have a cake/muffin like texture, so very soft. I used half whole wheat pastry flour to increase the nutrition (and I like the taste). I used old fashioned oats, but I chopped them a little so they wouldn't make the cookies to crumbly. I also subbed butter for shortening for more flavor, I was concerned this might make them spread too much but it wasn't an issue. I used a granny smith apple and would increase the amount next time just cause it's such a nice taste surprise. The cinnamon and nutmeg are a perfect pairing with the apple. I baked them for 16 minutes. Thank you Jessie for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Spring 09.
