2. Lightly grease baking sheets with a paper towel dipped in shortening.

3. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt in the small mixer bowl. Stir with a spoon and set aside.

4. Combine apples, raisins and sunflower seed in a separate small bowl set aside.

5. Combine brown sugar, butter or margarine and egg in the large mixer bowl. Beat on medium speed until well mixer, stopping the mixer and scraping the bowl several times. Beat in half of the flour mixture, then all of the apple juice, then the rest of the flour, stopping the mixer and scraping the bowl several times. Add the fruit-seed mixture and mix well.

6. Drop one level tablespoonful of dough at a time on the baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart.

7. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Lift with a pancake turner to a wire rack to cool.

8. Frost each cookie with 1 teaspoon frosting. Let frosting set about 1 hour before storing between layers of waxed paper in a loosely-covered container in a cool place.
