It’s time to Fill the Cookie Jar with Autumn themed cookies. On the first Thursday of every month, the Fill the Cookie Jar bloggers bake cookies based on a theme and share them on our blogs. Be sure to scroll below the recipe to see what goodies everyone else made with our Autumn theme. I made these healthy fruit and nut filled Amish Sugarless Cookies.
The recipe for these wholesome beauties is from The Beverly Lewis Amish Heritage Cookbook (affiliate link). Beverly Lewis is the author of several book series including The Heritage of Lancaster County (affiliate link) which revolves around the story of a rebellious young Amish woman.
They are loaded with fresh apples, raisins, dates (which I didn’t have so I swapped in some dried cranberries) and nuts. All of which just scream Fall to me.I was low on all purpose flour so I swapped in a gluten free baking mix that doesn’t have any leaveners and the cookies came out perfectly.
The cookies are simple to make, but they take a bit of extra time because of the cooling after you boil the fruit and then the chilling of the dough before baking.
So the next time you are craving a little something sweet, but want to keep it healthy, give these cookies a try.
Until next time, happy eating.
