What You'll Need

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • For the Apple Filling:
  • 16 ounces dried apples
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves

How to Make It

  3. Measure flour, sift with other baking powder and soda; add to batter, alternating with buttermilk and vanilla.
  4. Divide dough into six or eight parts. Use a well-floured board to roll into rounds, if baking on cookie sheets, or pat into well-greased 9-inch pans.
  5. Bake at 400° until browned.
