I Want " Apple Slices " And My Great Aunt Jay's " Anise Cookies " And Sliced Bread

I don't know if that's their official name but when I was a kid, living in a neighborhood German enough that the morning newspapers I delivered included a few German language ones, "apple slices" is what we called them. On the bottom was a thin crust, maybe like a pie crust, maybe softer.  Then there was a layer of soft apples in a very thick gel maybe a half to two-thirds the size of the avatar of this group. And then a thick sugar glaze. And if none of these words are correct it's because we didn't talk about them, just ordered them on Sunday and ate them.

As far as my Great Aunt Jay's anise cookies, I'm pretty sure she didn't get them in a bakery. However, I am willing to do so if that's what it takes. They were little pillow shaped cookies, hard as rocks until you soaked them, in your mouth or in coffee. Of course they had a delicious anise taste.

I also like bakery sliced bread because they would slice it in front of you with that neat machine.
