Spiced Apple Cookies

I went on a bit of an apple-recipe printing spree not too long ago. I purposely searched for the less common recipes since you can find a million different apple pie or apple crisp recipes. Apples in cookies is always something I wanted to try out, so I was more than pleased when I came across this recipe.

Ingredients:
    • 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 tsp. salt 
    • 1/2 cup shortening 
    • 1 1/3 cup brown sugar 
    • 1 egg
    • 1/4 cup whole milk
    • 1 cup unpeeled apple, minced
    • 3/3 cup walnuts, chopped
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ground nutmeg and salt until mixed well.
3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar together until smooth. Add the egg and milk.
4. Add in the flour mixture and once combined, add the apple and walnuts.
5. Scoop tablespoon sized drops of dough onto the baking sheet. Press down lightly to flatten the cookies. Bale for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden.

These are incredibly tasty soft little cookies. It kind of tastes like eating the crust of an apple pie, just with apples mixed in. And much softer.
