    Jollymae's Note:

    Not sure why these are called what they are - I have no clue where Apple's Restaurant is! lol A friend of mine used to make these ALL the time and send them to me in college (I would literally beg for them)...they are the most scrumptious cookies EVER!!

      A delicious cookie... possibly addictive for people who like Heath bars. They were always smaller (hence cost more for less) when I was growing up... and I just kept on buying them! The origins of the recipe name JUST MIGHT be found in Minnesota: a cookie given out to those wearing an "I Voted" sticker who patronized Apple's Restaurant on election day!

      These were outstanding cookies, thick, chewy, and the toffee added a bit of a crunch. The cookie dough is extremely heavy, so I'd suggest mixing the dough by hand, unless you own a heavy-duty mixer (if mixing the dough by hand, definitely use a very large mixing bowl)! I rolled the dough into balls the size of a golf ball. It took 16 minutes for the cookie bottoms to turn a light golden brown. I yielded 34 cookies (3-inches in diameter each). Thanks for sharing such a great cookie recipe!

      These were super tasty and surprisingly easy. My batter was easy to work with, and made a total of 36 cookies. They did take about 16 minutes to brown nicely. I will be making these again! Made for Best of 2008 Cookbooks Tag Game.
