Apple Spice Drops

Ingredients
1/2
cup butter or margarine
2/3
cup packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8
teaspoon ground cloves
1
egg
2
tablespoons milk
1
cup finely chopped apple

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl beat butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and cloves; beat until combined. Beat in egg and milk. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour, the apple, and the nuts with a wooden spoon. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Store cookies in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Makes about 40 cookies.
