Maple Glazed Apple Cookies
Makes 4 dozen

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup milk
2 cups chopped fresh apple

1 tablespoon melted butter
1 cup powdered sugar, stirred before measuring
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
2 to 3 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Cream butter or margarine with sugar; add salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, cloves and egg and blend well. Stir in flour with baking soda and milk until well blended; stir in apples. Drop by small spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are firm when touched but not overly browned.

Meanwhile, stir together butter, powdered sugar, maple flavoring and milk to make a smooth glaze. Dot top of each cookie with about 1/2 teaspoon of glaze; cool. Allow glaze to set before storing cookies in an airtight container.
