Moist & Delicious Glazed Apple Cookies

Spicy cookies that everyone loves. These cookies are terrific!! Moist in the middle, just a hint of crisp on the edges, and perfectly spicy! The icing is also the best I’ve tasted. What a treat!  I was looking for a good fall cookie recipe and gave these a try for a church dinner. I heard raves about the recipe and lots of people asked me to share it. I think I’ve found my new favorite cookie!
