Fall Harvest Apple Cookies

September 13, 2013

Fall comes on suddenly around here. It is my favorite time of year, because I can start baking again. My family appreciates my efforts, especially when I make cookies. 

These Fall Harvest Apple Cookies are soft and flavorful, with a sweet glaze that will remind you of a donut. They are really tasty!
