Apple Pie Cookies

I was playing around with a recipe for apple cinnamon cookies and was in the middle of preparing them (with my inherited KitchenAid mixer pictured below 🙂 ) when I realized I didn’t have most of the ingredients called for. Instead, I decided to wing it and work with what I had. I made with cookies that taste like apple pie!

Here’s the recipe I ended up using:

2 gala apples diced
2.5 cups of flour, sifted
1 tsp. salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup butter
2 eggs

Cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs. Mix the dry ingredients. Combine with diced apples. Bake 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, until brown around the edges.

Tofu recipe

As a vegetarian, I am always looking for great tofu recipes. I combined a few ideas and created this!

Tofu (marinated in equal parts soy sauce and sugar, with garlic added to taste), white rice, and Craisins. Yum!
