grandma's recipes - 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 I'd share  a  special  cookie 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!
