Cookie number 3 in the Grandma H’s cookie series is the Fresh Apple Cookie with Vanilla glaze. My grandma always had more apples than anyone would know what to do with come fall apple harvest time. This fresh apple cookie is a great way to use up some of those apples and a delicious fall treat. This time i didn’t use the glaze, because I’m feeling a little overloaded on sugar. These cookies are still plenty sweet without it.
