Maple-Glazed Apple Cookies

Fresh apples keep these cookies moist and chewy. If you prefer you can either omit the maple extract in the glaze and add vanilla or just omit it all together. Either way their still delicious.

I love these cookies! I have been making them for years and they are a family favorite in the fall! The only thing I do differently is use maple syrup in place of maple flavoring.
