Soft Apple Butter Delights Recipe

I won first place at a local apple bake-off with this original recipe. I especially like to take these hearty cookies to gatherings in fall.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:60 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee, room tempeture
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups apple butter
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in coffee. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in apple butter and walnuts (dough will be soft). Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are firm. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 10 dozen.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared apple butter.
