“When my Nana passed away a few years ago, I was lucky enough to receive her shoebox of recipes. Some were clipped from magazines and some were handwritten. Almost all had some handwritten note on them. I remember these cookies - almost alway made in the fall when her apples were ripe. I don't think the apples were peeled before shredding.”
