If you’ve read ONE REAL COWBOY, you know Cord was a sucker for anything with apples in it. Since the apple season will be here soon, I thought I’d share the recipe for his favorite cookie. Enjoy!
Cord Tanner’s Favorite Cookies
Cream 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine and 1 cup packed brown sugar.
Add 2 eggs, 1/4 cup milk and beat well.
Stir into creamed mixture:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1-1/2 cups of chopped, peeled, cored apples (2 medium apples)
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Drop teaspoons of dough onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes. Remove cookies to rack while they’re still warm. Makes 4 1/2 dozen.
Note: a hard cooking apple works best.
