These cookies look, smell and taste like Fall, and several of my grandkids have decided they are their “new” favorite cookie. Nina doesn’t like nuts, so I leave the nuts off some of the cookies. Melissa’s mother-in-law tasted them for the first time last week and said they tasted like comfort in her mouth. I thought that was a great way to describe them.
I really hate buying something for a recipe that I never or rarely use. In this recipe it’s the apple juice, but these cookies really benefit from the flavor. I buy the smallest size I can, and keep it in the freezer. If, like us, you are not regular consumers of apple juice, you may want to measure out what is needed for a recipe, and freeze that amount in each container.
The recipe calls for a tart apple, like Granny Smith, but I use whatever apples I have on hand. They are equally delicious regardless of the type of apple. One large apple or two small apples measure to approximately 1 cup of shredded apples. It doesn’t have to be exact.
I hope you like them as much as we do. Please share your experience with these cookies and let me know if you like them!
