Recipe: Autumn Apple Cookies
Sometimes, the best treats are the ones that you never planned to make.

My kids have been under the weather and everyone has been feeling a little low. I wanted to make a treat to bring up the general household spirit, but a quick rummage through the kitchen (and the knowledge that tomorrow is my grocery day!) determined that I had precious little to work with. Among other things, I found a couple of apples and some nuts. Throw that together with some basic baking supplies and Autumn Apple Cookies were born.

Sweet and a little bit fluffy, they hit the spot and made everyone feel just a tiny bit better!

  • Step 1

    Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Cream shortening and sugar, add milk. Blend in eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl, mix flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to creamed mixture. Stir in vanilla. Fold in apples and nuts.

  • Step 2

    Drop by teaspoonfuls (or with a cookie scoop) onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool two minutes then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

Regular flour should work fine, whole wheat is just my preference Happy

I can't believe that I did not see the ingredients etc. It just goes to show you that the adage about those who can't do, teach!!!!

If you look under "You Will Need" on the left of the photo of the cookies, the measurements are there.

Hope that's what you're looking for!

I want to make these so badly but I am the type of cook who needs measurements. Can you please tell us the measurements?
Thanks in advance.

Shortening is a semi-solid vegetable based fat used in baking. You can substitute butter if you like. Happy
