Super yummy I can't stop eating them! I changed a few things to make this a softer cookie: instead of apple juice I used apple cider and I added 1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce I also used only 1/2 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup of splenda. I also omitted the raisins and used 3/4 cup pecans instead of walnuts. This recipe turned out delicious and is perfect for a vegan like me!! Read More

A nice spicy cookie which my kids really enjoyed. I modified the recipe by using dried cranberries instead of raisins substituting whole wheat flour for half the white (and adding a little extra liquid to compensate) and putting a few drops of lemon icing sugar glaze on the top of each cookie. I also didn't add nuts because my kids have nut sensitive friends. Excellent but it took a little longer to cook than the recipe indicated. I would try the recipe again with slightly less brown sugar (maybe only a cup) slightly less fat and all whole wheat flour. Read More

I have beenbaking like crazy as i had 40 pounds of apples to get rid of. By far this is the best apple recipe I baked!!!!! I didnt add raisins, but added a 1/4 cup more chopped apples, to die for!!!!! I never added apple juice, it never said when and they still turned out, batter was a thick and a bit dry but once you scooped out and rolled in your palms it worked well, i just smooched the balls a bit and on parchment paper, came out perfect!!!!! took them to work, they were gone in no time, and everyone requested recipe!!! LOVE THEM!!! Read More

These were very good like someone else suggested I also used apple cider. I also added a tsp. of vanilla and instead of chopping the apples I grated them. They came out moist. Good recipe. Read More

I cannot express how grateful I am for this recipe! My 2-year-old son is allergic to dairy and my 1-year-old son is allergic to eggs so I am always searching for milk-free egg-free recipes! I also added dried cranberries instead of raisins and used water instead of apple juice as I didn't have any. However 1/3 c. of liquid was not enough to make a dough. It was still dry and floury. I used 2/3 c. and that was a bit too much so maybe 1/2 c.? This is a great fall cookie recipe and I'm sure will be a staple for my boys for years to come! Read More
