    Summer Breeze's Note:

    These cookies satisfy my Diabetic husband's sweet tooth and my chocaholic cravings. The applesauce helps to make them moist.

      I made these cookies this evening - baked them at 200C for 15 minutes in my oven. Tastewise, I feel they need more sugar in order to be sweeter. I used white sugar instead of a substitute(1/3 cup) but I'll use 2-3 tbsps. more next time. Also, I did use sweetened applesauce(homemade) and not unsweetened but still, I feel more sugar was required. Also, I did use a little over 1/2 cup of melted margarine(for vegetable shortening). I used all-purpose flour instead of cake flour(am not sure what "cake flour" really means). What I was drooling over all through while mixing the ingredients together, was, the appearance of the final mixture(i.e. before dropping it by tbsps. to bake). Oh, that is worth a 100 stars! Really tempting;)

      The previous review is correct. I followed this recipe to a T and there is no sweetness to these cookies. You must triple the sugar substitute and use sweetened applesauce. The cookies are moist and are visually appealing.
