"I wouldn't make these again and actually threw out the dough that I had frozen. The flavor was ok but the cake consistency was terrible. Perhaps if they were made with butter instead of shortening they might be better."

"I have made these cookies for a long time. A true favorite. Cookies are so soft. I use a whole apple and dice it very fine and leave the skin on. I also add some chocolate chips. My husband says everything is better with chocolate chips!"
