Happy Friday!

After a long week, you need a cookie.

And since it’s still Autumn, (please continue to ignore all Christmas commercials, Christmas songs, and Christmas-themed Wheel of Fortune episodes until the day after Thanksgiving. I like to hang onto every last bit of Autumn that I can), it’s time for another apple recipe from CW.

These are soft, moist, and trust me, you can’t just have one.

Apple Cookies (Adapted from Daisy Lane Cakes)


  • 2 cups + 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/3 cups brown sugar
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream together the shortening, brown sugar, milk, and egg in a bowl with an electric mixer.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gradually add that to the wet ingredients until combined. Stir in the chopped apples.
  4. Drop by tablespoon onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown. Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

My Two Cents: Seriously, how can you resist these? ;) I made them for a Halloween/Housewarming party, and they were gone in about 10 minutes. That’s always a tell-tale sign of how good my sweets are.

Add a cup of walnuts if you want a little crunch to these cookies, but I’m a big fan of soft and chewy cookies with no nuts—so I left them out.

Enjoy the cookies—and the weekend!
