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.
  2. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool. 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.
