Apple Cookies


1 1/2 cups apples -- unpeeled, shredded
1/4 cup apple juice -- unsweetened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup dried cranberries -- or raisins
1 large egg
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour -- unbleached
1/2 cup rye flour
1 1/2 cups multigrain cereal -- quick-cooking -- such as Quaker
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


Preheat oven to 375 degrees; coat 2 cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the shredded apple, apple juice, granulated sugar and cranberries; set aside. Beat the egg, brown sugar, vanilla extract and oil with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the apple mixture and stir it into the batter by hand. Add the flours, cereal, baking powder, baking soda and pie spice; stir into the batter by hand. Let the batter sit for about 5 minutes to absorb all of the liquid. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheets and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Repeat until all of the cookies are baked.
