Very Good!!

After reading a few comments about these cookies lacking something, combined with the fact that I couldn't find Stouffer's frozen Harvest Apples anywhere (4 different supermarkets!), I decided to use a can of Apple Pie Filling. I used almost all of the can, figuring the sweet syrupy substance they're packed in might be the something that was lacking. I also added cinnamon to the batter. After dropping spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, I sprinkled them with a mix of cinnamon and sugar. They came out excellent!! I'll make them again.....maybe adding in a few butterscotch and/or caramel chips!!

I had a can of apple pie filling, so I used that instead. I mixed cinnamon into the batter, then after dropping them on the cookie sheet, I sprinkled them wih cinnamon and sugar. I thought they turned out pretty well!!

needs something

I have to agree with a previous review... the cookies seem like they could be good but they are missing something. I also added cinnamon and sugar on top but that isn;t enough.

Surprisingly Good!

I made this recipe as a late night snack using fresh apples instead.But because you have to peel and slice the apples, it takes about 10 extra minues. I added about a teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter, and when they were almost done baking,I added cinnamon and sugar on top. Everybody LOVES them esspecially with my added cinnamon.Just sweet enough! The apples taste so good! In a matter of fact, after 10 minutes, I only have 3 left! It's a different kind of cookie that I'll definitely make again!!

I made these for a cookie exchange at work; the batter was fantastic, but the cookies themselves just came out okay. They fell apart easily (great for eating, not great for transporting) and were kind of bland. I made them with fresh apples with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled over the top, which was good; I'd make them again if I could figure out what it's lacking and add it.
