Fresh Apple Cookies

Fresh Apple Cookies created by Matheus P.

This recipe has been in my recipe box for years so I'm not sure where it came from. They're a nice, light cookie that is similar to a snickerdoodle.

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream together sugar, shortening & vanilla.
  • Add in grated apple.
  • Sift together dry ingredients.
  • Add gradually to creamed mixture, combining thoroughly.
  • *If dough appears slightly dry and doesn't come together, let it sit for a few minutes to allow the sugar to pull the juice from the apples.
  • Roll in walnut-sized balls and roll in mixture of 2 Tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes on aluminum foil or parchment, until cookies are golden brown and appear crackled.
  • Let cool on cookie sheet 4-5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

    These are one of the easiest and better cookies I have made. I love the fact I can use an apple without brown sugar and the spices in the cookie itself!

    I can barely bake anything, but I love making this recipe because it is so simple, quick and easy to make! It's very yummy, a good way to use up apples (I have used green apples as well) and it makes for a great gluten free cookie too!
