How many ways can you use apples? Apple bread, butter, cake, cookies, pie and sauce. So when I see two apples in the basket and I need to make something sweet, I start checking out Pinterest. Oh no, there's way too many choices. So I check the recipes that only uses two apples, because that's all I have. The first one that came up is a French Apple Cake. I checked all the ingredients and surprisingly enough, I have them all. Now I am excited and started getting ready to bake. While reading the instructions, I stumble upon another treat.
A chocolate chip shortbread cookies and of course I have all the ingredients because Jeff makes the ever popular triple C (chocolate chip cookies). I forgot to mention that I am baking these two treats to take over to my friend's house for dinner. She ask me if I was making anything special since she knows that I have a lot of goodies in the freezer. I told her I am trying two new recipes that I found. These two new recipes are the easiest ever but oh so yummy. I know this because my friend's other guests were complimenting me with the treats I brought and couldn't stop eating the cookies. Anyway, here's what they look like. One thing that I love about the French apple cake is that it is not very sweet and it's moist and little fluffy. On the other hand the cookies are a little too crisp/crunchy for me, so next time I will cook them on a lower temperature and lesser time. Otherwise it's a keeper.
