Applesauce Cookies

Applesauce Cookies with homemade caramel.

Today's Lesson:
Do make homemade caramel.
Don't burn your finger and jam it in your mouth!


  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of applesauce
  • 1 tsp. of baking soda
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/2 cup of raisins
  • 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (I went with 1/4 cup of pecans and 1/4 of walnuts)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cloves

***I did 1 3/4c flour and 1/4c oats.

I also added 1 diced apple b/c I didn't have nuts or chocolate***


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Cream butter and sugar, then add applesauce, blending in.
  3. Sift flour with baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  4. Add sifted ingredients to applesauce mixture and stir until smooth.
  5. OPT-Add raisins and nuts and stir until combined.
  6. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet, spacing the cookies 2 to 3 inches apart.
  7. Bake about 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

Makes 4 dozen cookies.


The cookies come out nice and moist, like a muffin top.

Mine only made 2dozen b/c I didn't use a teaspoon to drop. :(
