First order of business: announcing the winner of a $100 Amazon gift card from this post. I loved reading through the comments. The goals you have for yourselves are inspiring and some of you have overcome some incredible things. Thanks so much for sharing bits of yourselves with me! Barbie B, I chose your comment because I loved everything about what you wrote, from being a kindergarten teacher for 30 years to starting to run at age 50! You are awesome! Contact me for your prize!
Now onto the elephant in the room, er...the giant, mouth-watering cookie on your screen. Oh my goodness, these were dangerously yummy. I'd describe them as cakey, pillowy, large and totally irresistible.
Sometimes I shy away from baking because it can be time-consuming. These cookies are super easy, even with the frosting.
Be SURE that the apple juice is at room temperature (or slightly warmer) so it doesn't harden the butter.
And as you can see, it helps to have a super-cute little helper. Makes a world of difference. :)
Salivating yet? Grab a couple apples and turn on your oven! Have a great Wednesday, wonderful readers.
