1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2.In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine shortening and butter. Then add the sugar and brown sugar. Cream on high speed until light and fluffy.
3.Sift the dry ingredients together.
4.Add the eggs and yolk on low speed to the mixing bowl. Scrape down the sides. Then add the vanilla, cider and dry ingredients, in batches. Scrape down the sides periodically.
5.Stir in the diced apples by hand, setting aside a handful.
6.Use a small scoop to portion out the cookies. Gently press the reserved diced apples into the top of each cookie while maintaining the shape.
7.Dust with additional pumpkin pie spice.
8.Chill for 15 minutes, then bake for 15 minutes. You can cook them an extra minute or two if you want crunchier cookies. I enjoyed them soft.
