Recipe by Eryn T

Gey Gramma use to make these in the truckload full back in the day, moist, tasty and still a classic even years after she passed away.

Thank you for a yummy, healthy cookie for those times I need something sweet! I did replace the brown sugar with 1 cup turbinado sugar and 3/4 cup natural applesauce. I also replaced all of the flour with whole white wheat flour and the margerine with organic butter. These cookies are very soft and moist. I will be making these again!
