A really delicious cookie to make in the fall. They have a wonderful apple and spice with a hint of honey. The cookie is soft and moist. I used a cookie stamp to make fall flowers and decorated them with fall chocolate chips with colored sugar before I baked them. The recipe calls for you to flatten them with a fork. I plan to hide some of these in the freezer to give as a hostess gift and friends.
