Apple of My Eye Cookies

I will be honest when I say I am not the best baker and my kiddos are always asking for something sweet to eat. Well, luckily Minute Maid Apple Juice saved the day! This recipe was not only pretty simple to follow, it also involved using both of my kids favorite fruit and juice! Apples and Minute Maid Apple Juice are a big deal in my house so they are kept in stock regularly. They love the taste of Minute Maid Apple Juice, so I knew they would love these cookies! What’s even better is that they store very well, so they have a nice treat everyday of the week after the long school day!

▪½ cup butter or margarine, softened

▪2 teaspoons Minute Maid Apple Juice

These cookies turned out amazing and my children loved them! You can see the bits and pieces of apple in the cookies and then they just kind of melt in your mouth when you bite into them.
