Simple recipe for when you just want a cookie or two, (and don't want a whole batch waiting to get eaten!) It is easily adaptable to most any flavor; and also great to eat as dough (no eggs). I leave out the baking soda and salt because I don't care if my cookie rises, as long as it tastes good.
This smells delicious while it bakes. It can easily be multiplied to accomodate a larger family. If you use a cold apple, the sugar will stick to the outside nicely, but it will take longer to cook. I have heard of people using honey instead of sugar, but it tastes funny to me. (note: I'm sorry I originally forgot to post the baking temperature of 375)
