APPLE FILLED OATMEAL COOKIES

This recipe is from an old community cookbook.

1 cup finely chopped apples
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsps water
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
2 cups oatmeal

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a saucepan, combine apples, raisins, pecans, granulated sugar, and water. Cook and stir this mixture until thick and apples are tender, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

Cream the brown sugar with the butter then beat in the eggs. Sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and cloves. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk to the creamed mixture. Stir in the oatmeal. Set aside 3/4 cup of the dough. Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheets. Make a small depression in each cookie and add a small amount of the apple mixture to the depressed spot. Top apple mixture with a small amount of the reserved dough. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 375 degrees until cookies are lightly browned.
