Cookbook from Michelle Adams
Always a BIG hit!"I used this recipe but revised it a bit because I had left over canned cranberry sauce and wanted to use it up making cookies. I ommited the spices and added 4 tablespoons of Cocoa and used the cranberry sauce instead of the applesauce. The cookies were great. My husband and son always have rasberry hot chocolate and they said the cookies reminded them of that drink." - justlili

Applesauce Cookies Preparation
Need 3 bowls! Largest for Sugar and shortening, Middle for flour and spices AND Smallest for Applesauce and baking soda
Blend applesauce and baking soda together; set aside. In a second bowl, combine shortening, sugar and eggs; set aside. Blend together flour, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt in a large mixing bowl; blend in shortening mixture wiht flour mixture. Add applesauce mixture; stir in nuts and chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets; bake at 350F for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes 2 to 3 dozen cookies.
Works well with splenda, too. Making it safe for diabetics. Just don't include the chocolate chips. May want to make the drops a bit smaller, too! Tend to bubble up a lot more without the chocolate chips.
Always a BIG hit!
