Reviews for Apple Butter Cookies
"We have home grown apples; these are delicious and easy to make. I let them sit for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet; they are nice for Fall coffee."
"I changed my receipt to maple syrup and no nuts or raisins the cookies were amazing and school friendly"
"These cookies had a good flavor, but turned out flat. I've tried them twice now and added extra flour the second time and they weren't any better. I will not make them again."
"Mine too turned out flat and even dark on the sides. They tasted good but not to nice looking so think I will try some thing else. I was trying to use some apple butter I had made."
"These were okay.I added the extra flour like someone suggested, but my first batch wasnt very sweet. So for the second batch I sprinkled some Cinnamon Sugar on top. Those were pretty good."
"This cookies are delicious and very moist. I baked them on a cooking stone and they did not flatten out. I made a second batch using mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. They too were delicious. This recipe is a keeper."
"I doubled the recipe and added about a quarter cup more flour and mine came out fine and not flat."
"Good flavour and turned out soft and chewy. However, they went way flat! From the picture provided I expected them to be fluffy, but they were really flat. I would make them again though because they did have a good flavour."
"cookies are very tasty,wondering why they came out flat,they were refridgerated at lease 30 min."
