Apple Doodles Recipe

This originally started as an apple cake recipe. But I worked it into a recipe for cookies and have been making them this way ever since. It's a nice way to feature fall's delicious produce.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:42 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped peeled tart apple
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir half into the creamed mixture. Stir in the apple, walnuts if desired and remaining flour mixture.
  • 2. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 3 in. apart onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.

"Mine came out very dry. They fell apart when you picked them up, I thought they could have been a lot more moist."

"These cookies are awsome!!!! I would add a little more apple to it but other than that it was a huge hit with the family. This is going to be a cookie I'll be making all fall long!"

"I make an awesome apple cake & was looking for an apple cookie. Unfortunately, these cookies are just okay. I think the problem is that the apple pieces (which I cut quite small) do not bake long enough in a cookie. Will not make these again."

"These cookies were just great. I have made them 3 or 4 times. This last time I tripled the recipe. I finely chopped pecans instead of walnuts. We liked them better. I've had people tell me that this was the best cookie they have ever tasted. We put them in the freezer and when we take them out, they are still soft. I do add just a little more cinnamon. People told me the name should be Apple Cinnamon cookies. Whatever the name, they are GREAT tasting. Thanks for the recipe."

"I have tried these cookies at least 3 times. This last time, I tripled the recipe. I have had people tell me they are the best cookies they have every tasted. I used fine chopped pecans instead of walnuts and they were great. I added a little more cinnamon--actually people said they should be called Apple Cinnamon cookies. We freeze them and when we get them out of the freezer, they are still soft. Thank you for the recipe!!!"

"These were very tasty, but I did have problems with them sticking together in the cookie jar. I think I'll try them as a "bar cookie" or a sheet cake next time. I have a feeling they'll be more manageable to keep and eat. Thank you for sharing the recipe!"
