Apple Cookies

Ahhhh, my house smells like fall this morning! I altered this recipe from and came up with a delicious cookie. No need for icing, in my opinion—the apples, craisins and spices provide the perfect amount of sweetness.

Interestingly enough, I left out milk in the first round of baking. I think I may like the no-milk cookies a little better than the ones with milk.


  • 1/4 C butter
  • 1/4 C shortening
  • 1.5 C brown sugar
  • 2 C flour, sifted
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda

  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t ground cloves
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1 C apples, cored and finely diced
  • 1 C craisins

  2. Then beat together butter, shortening and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in egg until thoroughly blended.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices.
