Applesauce Raisin Nut Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Marie

This is a terrific cookie that bakes up soft and puffy and doesn't spread out. The cinnamon and cloves add a wonderful flavor and the walnuts add the crunchies. Cooking time is per batch. Recipe found on the internet.

I changed the recipe a bit. I used whole wheat flour, exchanged the cinnamon for nutmeg (yummy) and added just a dash of vanilla. I also omitted the raisins (personal preferance reasons though). Talk about a yummy cookie!
