1 cup Butter Flavor Crisco all-vegetable shortening or 1 Butter Flavor Crisco Stick
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups oats
2-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
6 to 8 tablespoons water
1 can (21 oz.) apple pie filling, finely chopped
1 cup reserved crumb mixture
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts

Heat oven to 375 . Grease baking sheet with Butter Flavor Crisco. For cookies, combine Butter Flavor Crisco, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Combine oats flour, baking soda and salt. Add alternately with water to creamed mixture stirring with spoon. Mix well after each addition. (Mixture will be crumbly, but will hold together when shaped into small ball) Add additional water if necessary. Reserve 1 cup for topping. Shape remaining dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Flatten to 1/8-inch thickness with floured bottom of glass. Smooth edges. Bake at 375 for 5 to 7 minutes or until light brown around edges are firm. Remove from oven. Cool on baking sheet about 5 minutes.

For topping, place 1 measuring teaspoonful of apple filling in center of each cookie. Spread carefully to cover. Combine 1 cup reserved crumbs and nuts in small bowl. Toss until mixed. Sprinkle over apple filling.

Return to oven. Bake 5 minutes or until topping is light brown. Cool 1 minute before removing to cooling rack.
