Waldorf Salad Cookies

I found this recipe in a magazine type publication Women's Circle Home Cooking- Christmas Snacks, 1989. This is the type of booklet in which home cooks contribute their recipes. Apparently some frugul housewife found herself with some leftover waldorf salad and didn't want to throw it out so she made it into cookies. Then she figured out how to write it up in recipe form. I can't imagine anyone making this with fresh ingredients.

Waldorf Salad Cookies
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
3/4 cups mayonnaise
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped apples
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
In medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a large bowl, beat together sugar, mayonnaise, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Add flour mixture and beat at low speed until smooth. Stir in apples, nuts and celery. Drop by level tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on racks completely before storing in tightly covered container.
