I made these today for my family, and I thought they were pretty good. I prefer chewier cookies, but I knew coming in to this that, by using applesauce, I wouldn't get the texture I like best. My brother thought the texture was a bit weird, but I liked it, as did my parents. I got a yield of a little under 30 cookies. I didn't really flatten them much before baking, so they spent a little extra time in the oven (one tray maybe spent 11 minutes in the oven and turned out pretty soft, while the other spent maybe 13 and was a bit firmer). I did not frost them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine apple sauce and sugar until well mixed.
  3. Add egg and vanilla and continue to mix.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in another bowl. Add gradually to egg mixture.
  5. Take roughly a tablespoon size portion of dough and place it onto a lighty greased cookie sheet. Works best if pressed flat (the dough when making the cookie).
  6. Bake in oven for 10 minutes.
  7. Take out of oven and remove from cookie sheet.
  8. To make the frosting, in an electric mixer preferably, combine powdered sugar and butter and vanilla. Add water according to consistency of frosting.
