Fresh Apple Cookies

Apples just seem made for brown sugar and butter. With a combination this good, you won't need much else, save for time to enjoy.

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup peeled, grated tart apple (e.g. Granny Smith)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups quick-cooking oats, uncooked
2/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Line cookie sheets with wax paper.

In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, flour, grated apple, and cinnamon. Bring mixture to a boil; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and immediately add the oats, nuts, and vanilla, mixing until well blended.

Working quickly, drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto wax-paper-lined sheets. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm. Store tightly covered in refrigerator.
Chef Suggestions
Variation: For Fresh Pear and Nutmeg Cookies, prepare as directed above but substitute 1 cup grated fresh pear for the apple and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg for the cinnamon.
