These are wonderful if you're looking for something a little different.

These cookies are like taking a bite of cake. They are wonderfully light and fluffy. I substituted butter flavored shortening for the regular shortening.
I needed a cookie to take to the assisted living facility where my grandma lives. I chose these because they were different. I omited the walnuts and added 1 cup of cinnamon chips. They were wonderful. The ladies are still raving about these cookies. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
I liked this recipe. I do think I will add a little cinnamon next time just for a little more zip. To me, cinnamon and apples compliment each other. A soft cookie, don't keep tightly closed.
I think this recipe is a good starting base for apple cookies for me. After reading through the reviews I changed the recipe as follows. I used 2 chopped apples, added 1 tsp vanilla, 2 pinches of ground nutmeg, 1 tbsp cinnamon and sprinkled in extra flour, wheat germ and oatmeal to compensate for the extra apple. I omitted the walnuts (I didn't have any on hand) and the raisins (my kids aren't really raisin fans)and I only used 1 cup of brown sugar. I then baked 3 cookies as test cookies to see how they would turn out. They turned out really soft and moist but still lacking in flavor. So I sprinkled in some more cinnamon and 2 pinches of nutmeg. They were better. I think next time though, and there will be a next time, I will use applesauce instead of milk and see how that goes. Oh and I also baked them in a preheated oven at 350F for 12 minutes, I've never baked cookies at 400F before.
This was pretty good. I only used half the sugar because I added a cinnamon spice drizzle on top, which made it just sweet enough. I only used 4 Tbls. of butter instead of 1/2 cup shortening. I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon powder as suggested by another member. I think I would double the apple next time because I really couldn't taste any. The batter is very dry until the apples are added, then it becomes more like a drop batter. I used parchment instead of a greased cookie sheet and it worked fine.
These are pretty tasty. I took other reviews into account and added homemade applesauce in addition to the apples, and cut the sugar down. I omitted the walnuts/raisins and used butter. Will def. make again if I have spare apples to use up.
Awesome cookies, the softest cookies I have every made! I would suggest adding a bit more apple than just a cup, and we added about a tsp of cinnamon to the recipe too.
Very good. I enjoyed them very much. I did, however, use 1/3 C sugar less. They turned out rather nice. :)
These are really good. To add to the value, I added 1 Tbs. of flax seed. Thanks for the great recipe. I will make these again.
ssooooooo yummy these are my favorite cookies ever!!!!
It is so easy and my son loves them.
Way tooooo sweet! The batter spread out too much and the cookies burned around the edges. They were not done in the middle. I was Very disappointed in the recipe.
These were pretty good. It's a nice recipe to use up leftover apples that aren't going to get eaten.
Didn't eally care for these...not much flavor and didnt like the texture
I'm giving it a four for a great base idea. First and foremost, I wanted the cake texture. Something sweet and easy for my 2 year old (who doesn't seem to like apples) to eat. I made the following changes: reduced to 1 cup of brown sugar, added 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 tbs cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp of ground ginger, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp of almond extract, and brought all of my ingredients to room temperature. It came out as the texture of cake but the consistency of a cookie AND my son is eating apple. I am going to increase the apple next time and definitely add walnuts. I also think a caramel cream cheese glaze might be in the works. Yum.
Delicious cookies for a fall treat. I made them the night before and wasn't thinking about all the moisture in the cookies so I covered them and the next morning they were very soft/mushy and never returned to their original state. Just remember to keep them uncovered or loosely covered to keep the outer shell a little hardened. I will definitely remember this step next time!
I agree easy to make, but we found there was not much taste, bland, I to like the other reader used 1/3 less sugar. Sorry but we did not like this.
I tried this recipe and used skim milk. It wasn't specified to use whole milk. It was a bit thin and took longer to bake but all in all it is a good recipe.
WAY too sweet! I added 2 tsp of cake spice (a milder version of pumpkin spice...from Penzeys) to give it some flavour. I just could not get past the sweetness to decide if I like it. I may try it again with 1/3 of the sugar.
These cookies are so easy to make...did the first batch as written...came out pretty good. Next batch added some vanillia and cinnamon...Came out fantastic!!!!
These are so good. Very flavorful. Baked just as directed. Yummy!
I gave this recipe 5 stars b/c I think its a great way to use up those lingering apples in the crisper. I did add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. My family isn't a fan of icing on cookies so I opted to not drizzle that on top but I did Dr'd it up to use up some other things in my pantry.... coconut & white choc chips..... Everyone really enjoyed them. I lowered the temp to 375 and cooked them a few extra minutes and they were great! Thanks for a great recipe!
I did take the advice of some of the reviewers, I added apple pie spices, and next time I make them I will double them. I added allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. I also added 1 cup of oatmeal. The vanilla glaze was a perfect addition.
I used shredded local apples and cranberries and these turned out really well. They're very soft and quite surprising. Also, I substituted butter for shortening (1-to-1).
We Really enjoyed these cookies!Simple to make and lots of flavor.I didn`t use the glase.Thanks Southernman-cookin
These took longer to bake than expected. Found that often the bottoms would burn before the center was completely cooked. Worked out better when I turned the over down 25 degrees and baked a couple minutes longer. However, they were very, very good when done.
Would be 5 stars if I hadn't changed it a bit...I added a tsp of cinnamon had no walnuts and used craisins instead of raisins and reduced to 1 cup of dark brown sugar. I also added 2 tbls of flaxseed meal soaked in 4 tbls of water for 5 minutes to add to the nutrition. I think the original recipe would have been good but a tad bland with no spice...also I can't find the icing recipe...but they are wonderful without!
a bit too sweet and even though I only used 1 cup of brown sugar. My nephew likes them, but what doesn't he like? :\
I didn't make any changes. It was a win/win. They made my house smell so wonderful plus everyone thought they were great!
Delicious but I would add oatmeal next time.
Very good cookie, no fail, perfect every time.
We will see how the taste testers like it!
The brown sugar melted before the cookies could bake. Do not recommend.
These are wonderful! Mine came out a bit soft-baked, but they were still delicious!!!!! However, I did add added few extra things (1tsp cinnamon, 1tsp nutmeg, 1tsp ginger and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla).
