  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 48 servings
  
       3 c  Flour
       1 ts Baking powder
       1 ts Cinnamon
     1/2 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Lt brown sugar; packed
       1 c  Butter; softened
       2 lg Eggs
       2 ts Vanilla extract
     1/4 c  Apple juice
     1/2 c  Apple butter
       1 c  Tart apples; peel/chop
       1 c  Raisins  (6 oz)
       1 c  Pecans; finely chop
            Crumb coating:
   1 1/4 c  Lt brown sugar; packed
   1 1/2 c  Quick oats (not instant)
   1 1/4 ts Cinnamon
       9 tb Butter; melted
  
     Preheat oven to 300.  In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and
   cinnamon. Mix well and set aside.
     Combine sugars in a large bowl. Add butter and mix using an electric
   mixer set at medium speed, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs
   and vanilla, and blend until smooth. Thoroughly incorporate the apple juice
   and the apple butter. Add the flour mixture, chopped apples, raisins and
   pecans, and blend at low speed until just combined.
     TO PREPARE the CRUMB COATING:  Combine sugar, oats and cinnamon in a
   medium bowl.  Mix well, add melted butter and mix until dry ingredients are
   well moistened. Set aside.
     Roll dough into 1-inch-diameter balls.  Roll each ball in crumb mixture
   until well coated.  Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches
   apart. Bake 24-26 minutes, or until cookie is firm to the touch and crumb
   mixture begins to brown.  Transfer to cool, flat surface. NOTE: My first
   try at these WONDERFUL cookies resulted in a dough that was too thin to
   roll into balls and a crumb coating mixture that was too thick to call a
   “crumb” mixture. Even adding a cup of flour did not help. I ended up
   dropping the dough on the cookie sheets and making thin bits of coating,
   placing on top of the cookies.  The result? GREAT COOKIES!
