Apple Spice Drop Cookies

Here's another simple apple dessert.  I found this one on the web.  I needed to take cookies to a family gathering and wanted to try out another new recipe using apples.  The taste was similar to the apples squares.  But the nutmeg gives these a slightly different taste.
I found this recipe at

Apple Spice Drop Cookies

makes about 3 dozen

1/2 Cup butter, softened
2/3 Cup sugar
2/3 Cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 Cup apple juice
2 1/4 Cup flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 Tsp. baking soda
1/2 Tsp. nutmeg
1 Cup apples, peeled, finely chopped (about 2 apples)
1 Cup walnuts, chopped

1/4 Cup butter, softened
3 Cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3-4 Tbs. apple juice

In a mixing bowl cream the butter and the sugars together.  Beat in the egg and apple juice.  Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl and gradually add the dry ingredients to the sugar mix, blend well and then add the apples and walnuts.

Place on a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake at 375 degrees for 13 minutes or until golden brown

Add the sugar, butter, vanilla and apple juice together and mix until smooth. Frost cooled cookies.

 I hope you enjoy these as much as we did. They were gone pretty quick!
