Cookie Apple Cake

I started out to make these apple cookies and it was too runny, so I turned it into a delicious light apple cake. So I have re-named the recipe Cookie Apple Cake.
Here is how I did it:
Heat these ingredients in a sauce pan, until the apples are soft, then drain off any extra liquid:
3 apples, cored, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon water
Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together:
1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar, white
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

After cream and fluffy add:
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Put into an 8" round cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Check and if top is brown, cover loosely with foil. If it looks set  in the middle it is done, if not bake for another 10 minutes. If top bounces up, it is done, or can check with the toothpick method. (If toothpick comes out clean it is done.)
This was so good! Enjoy!
