The sweet and spicy filling makes these bite-sized apple pies the perfect recipe for any fall celebration. If you serve them warm, they are especially delicious.

Another super easy cake mix cookie that is delicious and a great addition to a Christmas cookie assortment. Just the perfect touch of spice and fruit for the Holiday Season. They freeze well too.




Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.


Sift cake mix and flour together with spices into a medium-size bowl. Set aside.

Beat eggs slightly and add oil and applesauce. Add cake-mix and flour mixture half at the time stirring in to blend well. Fold in shredded apple and walnuts.

Cover and cool in refrigerator for an hour or more.

Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheets. They will spread out.

Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool for 1 minute on pan. Remove to cooling rack.

Stir cinnamon into frosting and spoon into a freezer plastic bag. Seal bag and microwave for 5 seconds on HIGH (100% power).

Snip small tip off bag corner at one side of bottom. Squeeze bag to drizzle cooled cookies with frosting.

Sprinkle with very small amount of additional ground cinnamon if desired.


Servings: About 3 Dozen

I wait all year to make these! Perfect for our snappy Ohio autumn days. It's really starting to get pretty, now. The leaves are turning after a very long, hot summer.



Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and milk and mix well. Stir in flour, spices, salt and baking powder. Stir in apples, raisins, and walnuts. Drop by teaspoon on GREASED baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes at 350 degrees F. Makes about 3 dozen. These are very moist and tend to stick if stacked. I always use waxed paper between cookies.

Cream the butter and sugar together and add the salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, and egg; blend well. Stir in the flour and baking soda, then add the milk. Stir in the sliced apples and drop, by small spoonfuls, onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Makes 4 dozen cookies.
