Reviews for Glazed Apple Cookies
"Delicious and easy to make. I leave them on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes; they are easier to handle. Highly recommended."
"Next time I'll make them with only 1/2 t. cloves. They mask the other flavors. Otherwise they're a great cookie."
"I just made these today and they are very easy and taste sooo good. It maked 4 1/2 doz cookies so you need to double the frosting recipe. I will be makeing them again and sharing the recipe with my friends."
