Apple Butter Cookies

Bake time
Prep time
Total time


These cookies are best served warm out of the oven! They combine the rich flavors of apple butter, cinnamon and nutmeg in a hearty treat. The cookies won't spread much after being dropped, so be careful not to make them too thick. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a large cookie sheet; set aside. In a large bowl cream together butter, sugar and egg. Add apple butter and stir. In a separate bowl combine flour, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, salt, nutmeg (to taste) and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. Roll mix into approximately 1-inch balls. In a separate bowl, combine rolled oats and pecans. Roll cookie balls in oats and pecan mix. Drop by cookie balls onto greased cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree F. oven for 8 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges of cookies. Yields: 2-1/2 dozen cookies.
