Apples + Fall = A Winning Equation.
Awhile ago, Susan texted me an Apple Butter Cookie recipe from Louisburg Cider Mill. She knows I love to bake cookies, and she thought they sounded good. Now that fall is just around the corner, I decided to give them a try.
They are reminiscent of a Snickerdoodle, but the finished cookie is a little softer because of the fruit butter in them. But that same fruit butter also gives them a lot of fall flavor.
And I couldn't help but think of all the Apple Butter that was made in the basement of the Stafford United Methodist Church over the years as we prepared for the United Methodist Women bazaar. I always purchased multiple jars of the homemade apple butter, which we slathered on toast, rolls or biscuits or I turned into coffee cakes and other treats. I often used pint jars of apple butter for Christmas gifts, too. I miss that church lady-created spread.
I think the Louisburg Cider Mill would be a fun field trip this fall. I might just pick up some more apple butter and other goodies!
