Fresh Apple Cookies
So soft, so moist, so tasty. And good for you too, with apples and whole wheat flour! From The Best of Bridge.
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix 2 cups of flour (your preference, I use half whole wheat half all-purpose) with 1 tsp baking soda. Cream together 1/2 cup of butter, 1 cup of brown sugar, packed, 1 tsp each cinnamon & cloves, 1/2 tsp each nutmeg and salt and 1 egg, beaten. Add 1/2 flour mixture to butter mixture and mix. Add 1/4 cup of milk and mix. Add 1 cup chopped apples, 1/2 cup of nuts (I like slivered almonds) and 1 cup of raisins to remaining flour mixture and combine with butter mixture. Mix until combined and drop spoonfuls onto a greased sheet (or parchment paper). Bake for 10 minutes.
Glaze while warm with 1 cup icing sugar mixed with 1 tbsp butter, 1/4 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp salt and 1 1/2 tbsp milk.
