Filled Beehive Cookies

As a girl, my mother made these for special occasions and we loved them! When I was working with the young women at church, I made them for the girls and they loved them too. They look like beehives and have a wonderful apple-walnut filling. Yum!

    I made these for a ladies tea. They looked very elegant on the pretty serving dishes. I had at least 5 ladies ask me for the recipe! The applesauce, spice and walnuts make these so very good. I was happy to share your recipe and I am sure I'll be making these again.
