"Even when the rainbow seems to pass right by me....I'm still finding Gold in the clouds....."

I have had a lot of apples so far this month for eating, using in dinner recipes and for baking.
This morning is an overcast, partly sunny, cooler early autumn Friday so I searched the Yummly app on my iPad for a new Apple cookie.  I found one called Apple Spice Cookies and it is delicious.  I tweaked it to meet our desires.  Please feel free to copy it.  They came out delish!!


1 c. mini-dark chocolate chips
1/2 c. shortening
1 1/3 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 c. unsweetened almond milk 
(or milk of your choice)
2 1/4 c. white whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 c. chopped unpeeled apple
(I used Cortland)

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the shortening and brown sugar and mix well with a hand mixer.
  • Beat in the egg and milk.  Mix well.
  • Add in the flour and spices.  Mix well!
  • Stir in the apples and chocolate chips.  
  • Drop by spoonful onto a slightly greased (I use coconut oil spray) cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes.
NOTE:  the original recipe called for whole milk, raisins instead of the mini chips, and chopped walnuts.

Serve with a steaming mug of cinnamon coffee or hot apple cider.

As with all of the recipes under the "faithfixes" lable, you do have permission to copy this recipe.

To answer your questions regarding my post...no, I wish I had the talent to sketch like that but I edit my photographs on line. I like the way they look though. I live in Nahant, which is a tiny little sort-of island about 20 minutes from Wonderland. I think you can almost see Nahant from the back side of the Wonderland parking garage.
