I love apple pie however I can get that delicious taste.

    A cookie would hit the spot just about now.Apple-Pie-Breakfast-Cookies1

    Especially one with all the ingredients of an apple pie with walnuts and raisins and diced apples to give it a satisfying crunch. These would be great for breakfast, as a snack for the kids or just any time a cold glass of milk would be welcome . . . or with coffee or hot chocolate. These would be excellent all year round.

    I’m not a walnut fan, but I do like almonds. Or you can forget the nuts . . . and the raisins . . .

    Fix these however you like . . . That’s the fun of making things yourself.
