How to make it
- For the cookies, cream together butter and brown sugar in a large bowl.
- Mix in egg, extract and half-and-half.
- Add dry ingredients, folding in diced apples lastly.
- Drop by spoonful onto lightly greased baking sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, just until cookies are lightly browned on the bottom.
- Remove cookies from baking sheet and cool on waxed paper. When cool, frost with the Cinnamon Glaze.
- To prepare the frosting, melt the butter in a medium bowl in the microwave.
- Stir in powdered sugar, cinnamon and enough half-and-half to make it a nice spreading consistency.
- NOTE: I know the instructions say to frost the cookies when completely cooled, but I like to spread the frosting while they are still just slightly warm, allowing the frosting to “glaze” onto the cookie and absorb into the cookie itself just a bit. You can try it, if you like, and see which way you prefer.
