- 1/4 cup unsalted butter; softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon grated apples
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon Salt
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- red food coloring
- 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 2 tablespoons apple juice
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add apples; mix well.
Sift together flour, salt and baking soda; add to creamed mixture.
Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth. Divide in half. Wrap separately and chill until firm, about 1 hour.
Shape each half into an 8″ long log. Roll logs in coloured sugar to coat. Wrap and chill until hard, about 3 hours or overnight.
Butter and flour the baking pans.
Unwrap and slice the dough into 1/4″ thick rounds. Place two rounds in each prepared pan, slide into the oven, bake in Easy-Bake Oven until beginning to brown around edges, about 20 minutes.
Cool the pans on a wire rack.
Mix confectioner’s sugar and apple juice. When cookies are done, transfer to wire racks. Brush cookies with icing and let cool.
