This is a wonderful time of year to make these delicious apple cookies! We have a few apples trees in our orchard, the grandkids love to help pick apples, then bake these cookies! Yum!!

These were very good and easy too! I especially like that you don't have to peel the apples. The only thing I did differently was add a little bit of cinnamon. I might cut back the nutmeg a bit the next time I make them. I think 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1/2 t. cinnamon would be good for my tastes.
