A co-worker brought this into a work luncheon and I begged her for the recipe after tasting it. She drizzled the slices with an orange syrup, but she didn't give me that recipe. I think it could be made by combing 2 tbsp of orange juice with enough powdered sugar to make a drizzable icing.
When my Nana passed away a few years ago, I was lucky enough to receive her shoebox of recipes. Some were clipped from magazines and some were handwritten. Almost all had some handwritten note on them. I remember these cookies - almost alway made in the fall when her apples were ripe. I don't think the apples were peeled before shredding.

I am posting some that I remember. I don't actually remember this one, but my father assures me that it was one of his favorites.
This one is a little different. It is supposed to be a copycat recipe of the Texas Lunch's hot dog sauce from Central Pennsylvania. It is not even close to their sauce -- but still, very tasty. Do not let the long simmer time scare you off -- it is worth it.
From the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. These have earned a permanent spot on my Christmas Cookie Tray. I sometimes skip the glaze and just dust with confectioner's sugar when cookies have cooled. Prep time does not include chill time.
