Glazed Apple Gems cookies

Here is the recipe for the Glazed Apple Gems, with my aunt's changes added in parentheses. (Remember that I have not made this recipe, so although it's one of my aunt's Tried And True stand-bys, I can't vouch for the results. If you try the recipe, let me know what you think of it!)

GLAZED APPLE GEMS, from Bon Appetite

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 large apple, peeled, cored and finely chopped
1 cup raisins, finely chopped
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
1/4 cup apple juice
1 tsp finely grated lemon peel
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

Preheat to 375 (350). Grease baking sheets. (use parchment paper)

Cream butter with sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in egg, apple, raisins, nuts, apple juice and lemon peel.

Blend in flour, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well. (gooey)

Drop onto sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes. (5-7 minutes)

GLAZE (double the amounts given)

1 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
3 Tbsp apple or lemon juice
1 Tbsp unsalted butter

Blend in food processor.

Cool cookies then dip each in glaze, swirling to cover. Drain on rack and cool completely. (Makes about 5 dozen)
