Soft Apple Butter Delights

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.

  • 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.
