It's apple harvest time in my region and I love cooking with apples. When I came across this little recipe on Smitten Kitchen's blog, I was so excited. You see, I'm a cookie monster. I have a cookie jar in my kitchen that is never (and I mean never) empty. Sometimes it's simply filled -- plain butter, chocolate chip, oatmeal -- but when I feel inspired, more complex cookies get added to the jar -- peanut butter, black and whites, dulce de leche sandwiches.
These are apple cookies and I love that they look like tiny apple pies. We need to go apple picking soon. I know, it's on the late side but I bet there are still some nice varieties on the trees. This recipe will be a nice addition to my autumn recipe file, and I can just imagine enjoying them with a nice cup of tea and my knitting.
