I had "inherited" bags and bags of apples and was trying to use them up and found this recipe in the August/September 2006 Taste of Home magazine that was chock full of other apple recipes. In the second batch, I added walnuts which were also a very nice addition. Even though the recipe calls for dried apples, don't let that make you hesitate in making these. I used chopped apples - 1 cup - and they were delicious! Also, be sure to flatten these a bit on the cookie sheet, they do not spread out while baking.
