2 1/4 - 2 1/2cupsflour total(I ran out of all purpose flour, so I substituted in 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour, to no ill effect)
1/2teaspoonsalt(halved from an original 1 tsp)
2tablespoonsPumpkin Pie Spice OR these 4 spices:
3teaspoons/1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/2teaspoonground ginger
2-3apples(finely diced ;I think I used Gala apples)
With a stand mixer, cream together shortening and butter. Add sugars, and mix until fluffy.
Separately, sift together dry ingredients.
Add eggs and egg yolk to the butter and sugar, and mix until combined. Add vanilla and cider. On low speed, add flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Add diced apples and stir to combine.
Use two spoons to dish cookie dough onto parchment- or Silpat-lined baking sheets, placing them 2 inches apart. Chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes before baking. (Do not skip this step, or cookies will spread.)
Bake at 350F for 15 minutes, until edges are lightly brown.
