       Title: Raw Apple Cookies
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       1 lb Butter or margarine*
   1 1/2 c  Dark brown sugar
   1 1/2 c  Granulated sugar
       6    Eggs (large)
       1 tb Vanilla
       4 c  Peeled, diced apples**
       1 c  Raisins or chopped walnuts
       2 ts Baking soda
       1 tb Cinnamon
       1 ts Ground ginger
       1 ts Ground cloves
       6 c  All purpose flour +/- 1 cup
  
     NOTE: This recipe is for a DOUBLE BATCH. These cookies are so good one
     batch is never enough so I always make a double batch.
   
     * Be sure to use regular margarine and not a spread.
     ** Any kind of apples can be used.
   
     Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheets with PAM or Baker’s Secret
     or lightly grease. Cream butter or margarine and sugars. Add eggs, beating
     well after each addition. Add vanilla. Stir in baking soda, cinnamon,
     ground ginger and cloves. Stir in apples, nuts and raisins (if desired).
     Add the flour and mix well.
   
     I start with 6 cups of flour and according to the humidity level that day,
     I add up to an additional cup of flour. Drop by teaspoonful onto lightly
     greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until
     lightly browned.
