Grandma had a ton of apples last year so I have done a lot of apples recipes, working on using them up.  These turned out well, but I didn't think they would ship well because of the fruit, which is an issue for the amount of cookies I sent overseas. 

Modified from some website

3 cups flour
1 tbsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 large apple, peeled and shredded (about 1 cup) (I even did this with frozen apples as we had them leftover from summer)
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat to 350.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, 2 tsp cinnamon and salt.  Mix well and set aside.  In another bowl, combine butter, 1 1/2 cup sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Mix until creamy.  Gradually add the flour mixture until combined.  Fold in shredded apples.

In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon.  Mix well.  Form dough into 1 inch balls and then roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture and place onto prepared baking sheets. 

Bake for 11-12 minutes or until done.  Cool on wire racks.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
