Applesauce Cookies

Let us start with the Applesauce. I used some homemade applesauce that I made just that week in the instant pot. Click here for the recipe, it is very healthy and easy. Because the applesauce is the sweetener I feel that it is important to have QUALITY sweet applesauce. My homemade applesauce had no added sugar, but was made with fresh, sweet apples so it was plenty sweet.

Step 1: Cream the butter, eggs and together. Then slow add flour

eggs, shortening and butter in mixing bowl

Step 2: While that is creaming together in a small separate bowl mix baking soda together with your applesauce. A nice little fizzing action will happen.

Applesauce cookie batter

This batter is similar to a pumpkin cookie batter. It’s really sticky, not one that you can roll into balls. so just plop a spoonful on to a cookie sheet. Space them far enough apart to allow the cookie to rise and spread as it bakes.
