1 tart apple
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tbsp honey
2 large eggs (I use Jumbo eggs)
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp to 5 tsp ground cinnamon, to taste
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Preheat oven to 375 F.

Dice apple into small cubes and place on a baking tray. Bake the fruit cubes for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until just soft. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, shortening, baking soda, brown sugar, honey, eggs, vanilla extract and cinnamon.
Add the flour, apple bits and walnuts to the cookie dough and thoroughly combine.

Drop cookies onto ungreased baking sheets by the heaping tspful.
Bake for 9 to 12 minutes. Do not over bake, as they are best when a bit soft. Let cool on the tray before storing.

As a different tone to the cookies, try omitting the cinammon and using apple pie spice!
