Yu-Han Chao: FRESH APPLE COOKIES 1/2 cup shortening or butter (1 stick) 1 1/3 cups brown sugar 1/4 cup whole milk (or soy milk) 2 1/4 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup unpeeled apple, finely chopped (1 medium apple, any variety) (optional) 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1. Melt shortening or butter (30 seconds or so in microwave). Stir in brown sugar and milk with fork or whisk. 2. Add flour, baking soda and cinnamon (and nutmeg, if using). Mix until smooth. Dough should be sticky, not runny—if too liquid-y and won’t hold shape, add more flour by the tablespoon. 3. Chop unpeeled apple (discard core) into fine pieces and mix into the dough. 4. Drop cookie dough by rounded teaspoonful 2 inches apart on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
