Beanpole's Favorite Apple Cookies

They're finally almost gone and mostly because I've been making half batches of these cookies a couple times a week. I found a recipe on and made a couple changes. I use 2 medium to large apples per half batch instead of frozen (frozen? really?), throw a dash of cinnamon into the batter, and sprinkle the tops with cinnamon and sugar before baking. The Beanpole can't keep his hands off them!

Apple Cookies(
1 package (12 oz.) Classic Dishes Harvest Apples, defrosted according to package directions
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup vegetable shortening
2/3 cup butter
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts

-Drop dough by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
-Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool for 1 minute. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
