Recipe Notes


If you are expecting a sugary cookie this is not it! Applesauce cookies are sweet but the intensity of the sweetness will depend on your applesauce. 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. If you are using a store bought unsweetened applesauce that is not very sweet to your taste as is don't expect your cookies to be super sweet.
