Applesauce Cookies – A Fall Favorite

by Marie on October 29, 2008

Applesauce Cookies were a favorite of mine growing up. We would bottle our own applesauce, then use it to make yummy cookies all year long. They are moist and cake-like, and scattered with chocolate chips to make them a perfect Fall treat.

Recipe for Applesauce Cookies:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • chocolate chips, nuts, raisins

Mix the first 5 ingredients together. Then add in the rest of the dry ingredients to it, combining well. Now add your chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins. Scoop onto a baking sheet. The dough will be very soft. It gets plopped on the baking sheet, but will cook up nicely. Bake for 8-11 minutes at 400* or until lightly brown. Makes 3 dozen cookies.

Here’s a few baking tricks I like to use when making cookies:

  • A cookie scoop for the dough helps them come out equally sized.
  • Baking with 2 cookie sheets makes the time go by much faster.
  • I always bake cookies using my silicon baking mats! Breezy cleanup.

Try these yummy Fall Applesauce Cookies. They’re a healthier alternative for an after dinner treat.
