How could a day not be wonderful when you have something like Apple Spice Cookies? I found the recipe on the better homes and garden site that I get emails from. Em and I worked on them together this afternoon.
Cookies are a nice warm treat on a cool, fall day.
Today I heard many things that warmed my heart: (in no order of importance)
- My 5 year old belting out a song that she heard her Daddy singing at church earlier in the day.
- “Mom, can we bake something together?” (How can you say no when your 8 year old is asking to spend time with you?)
- Laughter of my two girls as they were watching Cinderella together.
- My husband saying, “Want me to stop by KFC and bring home lunch?”
Then put that on top of a great morning of worship with my church family and it makes for wonderful day.
If you make these cookies, I hope you will be able to share that time with someone you love too!
Apple Spice Drops
In a large mixing bowl beat on high for 30 seconds:
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine
Add to the butter:
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Beat the above mixture until combined
- 1 egg
- 2 Tablespoons Milk
- 2 cups of flour ( mix with the mixer and then mix by hand once it is too hard to do with the mixer)
- 1 cup finely chopped apple
- (1 cup chopped walnuts….we left these out as my girls don’t care for them but I think they would be great!)
Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet
Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 11 minutes or until the edges are light brown.
Let them cool on the cookie sheet for just a bit before you transfer cookies to wire rackes.
Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
