I decided one day, about 10 months ago, that there had to be a way to make a cookie that would taste good, but not have shortening, butter or the typical veg oil. So, I decided to experiment. I put together the basics I knew I would need, the flour, sugar and so on. Then, I needed something for moisture. Well, I decided to use my Grapeseed Oil. For those of you who are not familiar with grapeseed oil, unlike Olive Oil, it can be used in baking, it has a high smoke point, 400 degrees, so you can deep fry with it, it does not splatter like the typical oil, and it does not soak into the foods as your typical oil does. Also, it's much healthier than Olive Oil and lot a more versatile. Anyway, I added a little bit of grapeseed oil, but I didn't want too much as I wanted a healthy cookie. So I thought to myself, what other foods have water that would provide moisture. Well, I had some apples and thought, why not? So, I tried it. The mix seemed a bit dry, so I decided to put it in the fridge for a couple of hours and see how that would change things. And wa la..a cookie was discovered. You can add spices to suite your taste. Feel free to play with it.
