    Fitness Guru's Note:

    This dough will hold any form you want to cut from it but it will still bake up soft! (I think the soft texture comes from the applesauce.) The kids will love decorating them and we all agree that they are pretty tasty too!

      Our mobile home park has a Wednesday afternoon pot luck (Why the middle of the week I'll never understand!) & I make up a huge platter with various cookies including these! Big hit, even with the older residents! I used a dark molasses along with some homemade applesauce for a GREAT TASTING, VERY CHEWABLE TREAT!
