"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Add nuts and apple and raisins and mix. Stir in remaining dry ingredients and milk. Mix well. Drop by tablespoon onto lightly-greased baking sheet 1 1/2 inches apart.

Personal Notes:
We like them better without the glaze. We think they're sweet enough without. I never added the raisins because our kids didn't like them. Now I make them both ways. Marv likes them with or without.
