This cookie is cake-like, nice and soft. I made two batches for my son's 1st grade class. The first batch was with good tasty granny smiths, the second was with red delicious. The granny smith batch was a bit wetter and much more flavorful, while the red delicious batch was very low in flavor. I recommend using good tasty apples. I also used butter instead of shortening and 1 1/2 c. of finely chopped apples in each batch. This was great for the kid's apple fair at school.


I love this recipe. I just made it for a sick friend. Did change it a bit, because I cannot see using soo much shortening - it's gross. I used butter instead...same amount. And then substituted an oriental pear instead of the apple. Used Almond slivers instead of walnut. All the rest was the same. It came out yummy.


These were WICKED good! I was looking for a good recipe to use leftover apples in. These bake up really well - the dough puffs out nicely when cooked. GREAT flavor too - nice combo with the nutmeg, etc.
