Can't complain about a healthy cookie that tastes great too! I made the recipe just as stated except for the dried apple chunks. I'm not a fan of dried fruit, and I took a note from the other comment about the cookies having a strong apple flavor and decided to leave it out.

I might cut out a little of the brown sugar next time because they were slightly on the sweet side. Overall, very delicious! I will make them again and again!


These were very tasty and easy to make. The apple flavor is stronger than I anticipated, but still very good.


These are terrific! I didn't have any apple butter on hand so I used apricot jam as a substitute. These cookies definitely don't last long once they're out of the oven.
