Sweet Tooth Saturday: Gluten Free Apple Cookies
I am still working on using up a massive amount of apples that was given to me by a patient. Ive been making every apple thing I can think of. The husband requested some apple cookies so this is what I came up with. If you like a flat crispy on the outside, gooey/chewy on the inside, then this isn’t your kind of cookie. The apple chunks keep it moist so this is a very soft cookie. That being said, they are darn good and I ate way too many of them.
