This recipe comes to us from Valerie Thayer.

Ingredients:
2 cups gluten-free flour mix
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cloves
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup dates, quartered (optional)
1 cup seedless raisins
½ cup margarine or butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup Lucky Leaf Apple Butter

Directions:
Combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar; stir in egg, dates, and raisins. Stir in dry ingredients alternately with apple butter. Chill dough for about 30 minutes. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated 375F degree oven for about 12 minutes.

To help prevent the cookies from spreading too much we chilled the dough before dropping onto a baking sheet. These cookies can stick together once cooled so I always slip a sheet of wax paper between them. And these freeze well for later!!
