Food for Thought: Apple cookies

Chef Malcolm Green shows News 12 how to make simple, quick and delicious apple cookies.

Any type of apple will work perfectly with the recipe, Chef Green says.

First, lemon juice is drizzled atop apple slices to give them some acidity.

Next, peanut butter is spread on top of each apple slice and coated with coconut flakes.

Chef Green then tops the apples with crushed pecans and chocolate chips.

What is key to the dessert is incorporating the sweetness of the chocolate chips with the texture of the peanut butter and pecans.
