Expert Tips

Always be sure to pack brown sugar tightly into the measuring cup; it’s especially important in baked recipes like this one.

Vary this quick cookie by using different fresh fruits-- or even vegetables-- that you might have on hand. Good substitutions for the apple include pears, bananas, zucchini and carrots.
