Glazed Fresh Apple Cookies Recipe @pinch

What a fantastic old havefashioned recipe. Moist, tender and packed with different flavors and textures, we adored these cookies. Pecans add a nice crunch. Raisins give the cookie a bit of chew. The perfect balance of spices goes really well with the bites of apple. A sweet, thick glaze on top is the perfect touch. These cookies will be delicious on any dessert tray. My mom gave this recipe to me, handwritten. I had forgotten about having it. But I found it today when looking through recipes. I remember her making them in the winter, but they can be made anytime!
