WARNING: Icky Picture

I baked a batch of apple cookies (after a German recipe from Marions Kochclub) which turned out quite nicely - not too sweet, nice and apple-y - but if you look at the picture, they appeared to be moldy little mushrooms. Eek!

Nevermind that, here's the super easy recipe:

Mix 1/3 cup sugar, tsp vanilla, 2 eggs and 100g (a bit less than a stick) butter. Sift 2 cups + 2 tblsp flour with 1 tsp baking powder and add. Quarter and peel 2 apples, remove core, cut in small pieces and add (I just use a mixer for all of this, don't worry about breaking down the apple pieces, they'll get mushy anyway). Using two tablespoons, drop dough on parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 400F about 10 mins. Dust with powdered sugar when cool.

The mushrooms, err cookies are best when fresh. They get softer when you keep them in a container. They're not exactly pretty, but they are really quickly made and taste like little apple pies :-)
