Cookies are an all-time favorite treat. And when you mix up a batch of apple cookies for your family and then add a sweet glaze, you have a treat that's likely to disappear lickety-split. The website Allrecipes.com offers this glazed apple cookie recipe. Choose apples that are at the peak of ripeness and stay away from apples that are tart, such as Granny Smith. This recipe makes three dozen cookies.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cream shortening and brown sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Add egg and continue to blend until smooth.
Stir together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg in a bowl. Add half to the creamed mixture.
Stir in the apples and then add the rest of the dry ingredients. Add the milk and mix well.
Drop spoonfuls of the batter on a baking sheet that is greased with nonstick cooking spray. Space the batter at least 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes.
Make the glaze by combining the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and half-and-half until it is a glazing consistency. Remove cookies from the oven and top with the glaze.
