Tuesday, March 27, 2007 Apple Oatmeal Cookies

I made these yesterday and they are delicious! Really soft and taste like apple crisp or something like that. YUM!

3/4 cup shortening
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup flour
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3 cups quick oats (not instant or old fashioned)
1 cup peeled diced apples
3/4 cup raisins (optional)
3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 375° and grease cookie sheet.
Combine shortening, sugar, egg, milk and vanilla in large bowl.
Beat at medium speed until well blended.
Combine flour, cinnamon, salt, soda and nutmeg in a small bowl and mix into creamed mixture at low speed until just blended.
Stir in oats, apples, raisins and nuts.
Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough about 2-inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 13 minutes or until just set.
Cool for a minute or 2 on cookie sheets and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

** I didn't use the raisins or walnuts because I didn't have either. I think they'd be really good with the raisins though!**
