Please Share Your Favorite Cookie Recipe & Applesauce Cookies

It is my firm belief most, if not all, of the people who read grandma's cookie jar are people who bake cookies - at least from time to time. So, I thought it would be fun to have a favorite cookie recipe contest . . . and arranged for a special prize for the person who shared the winning recipe.

But, with only today and tomorrow to go, for submitting a recipe, only four people have shared a favorite cookie recipe. 

If you have been planning to share your favorite cookie recipe, and I hope you have, but just have not done so yet, you only have today - October 17, 2017 and tomorrow - October 18, 2017 to share your recipe.

Please share your recipe today by copying and pasting it - or typing it in - to the comment section below this post. It is this simple to enter the contest.

Voting will begin in a few days to select a winning recipe and whoever submitted the winning recipe will win a photo cookie jar of their own - a fun prize for sure!

So, please, share your favorite cookie recipe today!

(And, to encourage sharing a favorite cookie recipe, I'm sharing another recipe with you! I live in West Michigan - apple country! We have apples, lots of apples at roadside stands and in the stores, so of course I have apples at home! Yesterday I made some homemade apple sauce using Rome, Empire and Fuji apples and today I'm making applesauce cookies. I found this recipe on-line.)

  • 1/2 cup butter 
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups cake flour 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup thick unsweetened applesauce 
  • 4 medium apples peeled cored and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons water 
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice 
  • 1 tablespoon sugar 
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°, line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Sift cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt into a large bowl.
  3. In a medium bowl cream together butter and brown sugar add egg blend about 2 minutes, add sifted dry ingredients alternately with the applesauce, combine until just combined. Drop batter by spoonfuls (about the size of a golf ball) on prepared cookie sheets, bake for approximately 10-12 minutes until lightly golden. Keep in cool dry place, best if let to sit for 1 day before eating. (If you can wait) Enjoy!
