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.
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.
