Very yummy cookies. I used Holiday Applesauce for the applesauce and ask for spice. they came out soft and delicious. DH has already scarfed a huge handful. I didn't add any nuts as DH doesn't like them and we are both very happy with them. I replaced all sugar with Splenda in both recipes.
This recipe was perfect. I doubled the recipe cause Iwas making a snack for my 1st grader to take as a snack . When doubled it made alot! but its ok my whole family loved them and the best part,I have enough batter for the entire week! They are sooooo soft almost like little cakes. I added the raisins and choclate chips.! thanks for this recipe!
Not really my thing but good. I think it has a little too much nutmeg and I had to bump my oven temp up to 350 degrees and cook a lot longer but I was cooking on Pampered Chef stoneware. I also did not grease the sheet since there is so much shortening in the recipe and I did not have a problem getting the cookies off the sheet. Thanks!
