    White Rose Child's Note:

    I got this and modified slightly from VegWeb. Proof that you don't need butter or shortening to make good sugar cookies! These are really easy & yummy. I used an icing similar to Sugar Cookie Icing to stick the sprinkles on.You have fun two ways from cut-out cookies: decorating, and eating :-)

    My Private Note


    Serves: 10


    dozen c ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix together pastry flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk the applesauce, oil and vanilla together until well combined.
    2. 2
      Pour wet ingredients into dry, and stir to mix. Then knead them into a dough. You may have to add some more flour or some of the white flour, to make it dry enough to roll out properly. (A bit sticky, of course, but not wet.)
    3. 3
      Start preheating the oven, 300-350 degrees depending on the heat of your oven- ours is quite hot so I use a slightly lower temperature.
    4. 4
      Roll out the dough (around 1/4 inches thickness) and grab some cookie cutters!
    5. 5
      Bake on a nonstick or lightly oiled pan for about 10 minutes, till just barely golden brown on the bottom edges. They will be kinda crunchy if you bake them too much longer.

      Magpie diner's review made me skeptical at first, saying "the dough was not at all that tasy". I disagree. The dough was super tasty! It was neither super oily nor applesauce-flavored. In fact, my dough was a little dry, so I used a bit more than a 1/4 cup applesauce. The cookies were pretty good. They tasted a little off from regular sugar cookies. Next time I make them, I'll definitely just make them into snicker doodles. After all, there's 1/2 tsp cinnamon in the dough anyway. They'd be tasty rolled in cinnamon sugar and then baked. FYI: When I made these, I used all-purpose flour and regular vegetable oil. I also added 1/2 teaspoon salt.

      These are tasty and the dough is extremely easy to make. I have a toddler and wasn't willing to give up my precious moments alone to roll out dough, so I rolled the dough into a log, put it in the fridge and then sliced it up for cooking. Super fast. I also made a batch in which I added 3 T of cocoa. SUPER tasty. I didn't compensate enough with the wet ingredients so it was a little difficult to work with - if you try this, add more appleasauce. Thank you for posting this. An addition to my previous review: I substituted 1/4 c of cocoa for 1/4 c of sugar. That worked out great. I have also substituted mashed banana for the applesauce. It's definitely banana-y, but if you like that (esp with cocoa, as I do...), then it's great.

      These worked out really nicely for me. I must admit, I was a little skeptical, the dough was not all that tasty (well, tasted like applesauce), and it was pretty oily. I made it a day ahead and left it in the fridge. I don't know if having it so cold helped or hindered, but we didn't have any problems rolling it out (no more than usual with sugar cookies). We made us of the entire batch of dough, it didn't dry out or become brittle. The final product doesn't taste like applesauce thankfully! Great recipe, thanks!
