Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in honey. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in sour cream. Mix and sift flour, baking soda, salt and spices; stir in and blend well. Stir in apples. Drop by teaspoons 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until edges are brown. Makes about 5 dozen.
I made these cookies today. They are delicious and smell SOOO good while baking. I used a tablespoon to size them and it made exactly 4 dozen. They baked nicely for me at 13 minutes. Seemed odd to increase the size of the cookie and decrease the baking time, but they did turn out great.
I found the newspaper clipping in my recipe box but only the ingredients and the first line of instructions. What a hoot to find the exact same recipe on the internet! Thanks.
