2 Applesauce Chocolate Chip Cookies

Applesauce Chocolate Chip Cookies
Previously, my posts have been about bread. Well, cookies are a form of bread, aren't they? Since I have had requests for some of my cookie recipes, I have decided to add them to this blog (and change the title). Welcome to my first cookie entry!

Now, these cookies kinda look like little russet potatoes, but rest assured, they are a soft, light and moist cookie! I don't know where the recipe came from; only that my mom clipped it from a newspaper many years ago. A friend of mine has tried this recipe using canned pumpkin with good results. This has been a family favorite and my 16 year old son gets ALL the credit for making these cookies tonight!

Applesauce Chocolate Chip Cookies

(4x6 printable recipe) (full page recipe)
1 c. thick applesauce
1 t. baking soda
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. cloves
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. salt
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. chopped nuts, if desired

In a medium mixing bowl, combine applesauce and baking soda. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Stir in applesauce mixture. Add flour and spices. Add chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop by medium cookie scoop onto greased baking sheet. (I put my cookies on the underside of my Cuisinart non-stick baking sheets; my convection oven browns them more evenly)


Bake at 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until tops are dry and when touched, the
cookie springs back. Type rest of the post here
