Soft Apple Hermits Cookies Recipe

24 servings, ready in 30 minutes

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Beat butter, SPLENDA® Granulated and molasses until smooth. Beat in eggs and stir in grated apple.

In a separate bowl, sift flour, spices and salt. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until blended. Stir in walnut pieces and raisins and spoon by generous tablespoonfuls (or with a small ice cream scoop) onto prepared baking tray, leaving an inch (25 mm) between cookies.

Bake for 14 to 16 minutes until bottom just begins to brown and top of cookie springs back when gently pressed.
