Reviews for Apple Doodles
"Pretty much just what I expected . Apple-cinnamon deliciousness! I also used butter."
"Were somewhat dry, just add a little more milk. Turned out very soft. Excellent fall snack."
"Even though the cookies turned out really yummy, I had a hard time stirring the dough and found I had to add a bit more."
"Great flavor! YUM!!!"
"These cookies are excellent! I used butter instead of the butter-flavored shortening. The cookies came out very soft."
"Mine came out very dry. They fell apart when you picked them up, I thought they could have been a lot more moist."
"I live in apple country and made these last fall. My very picky children loved them. I make them all the time."
"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."
"I made these for my family and they loved them! I have been asked to make them again for our Christmas party. They were such a hit."
"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 cookies are awesome!"
"I thought these were delicious. I added an extra egg to my mixture and they turned out fine. I also dusted them with powder sugar after I took them out of the oven. Family really enjoyed them!"
"These were Awesome, I didn't have shorting, so used butter instead. They turned out alot flatter than the picture (more like regular cookies), but more cake like, and were really yummy!"
"I made these to start my "Fall" baking. They are wonderful! Easy to make and easy to eat...I just hope there's enough for the kids when they get home from school:)"
"Re: Apple DoodlesThese were a hit at my husbands work. Everyone loved them.Ms.Cooking"
"I have an apple cake recipe that my mother gave me over 25 years ago that is very similar. Sounds like a good idea for a tea cookie. ShereeS."
"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!"
