  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup apples peeled, cored, and finely diced
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  • Stir half of the dry ingredients into creamed mixture
  • Stir in apples and raisins, then stir in remaining half of dry ingredients and milk
  • Mix well
  • Drop batter (from about a big tablespoon) 2 inches apart onto a lightly greased baking sheet
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes (I did 8-9 minutes because we like them soft and they were perfect)

  • Spread glaze on warm cookies
  • Enjoy
