I’m taking a break from my normal snarky life observations to present you with something fantastic! We are entering domestic season – and the world is bringing forth fruit.
I found this recipe from the FarmGirl Gourmet and then changed a couple of things to make them perfect for me! I added an egg, used brown sugar instead of white, as well as added vanilla instead of nutmeg/cloves.
Chocolate Chip Applesauce Cookies
1/2 c butter, room temperature
1 c brown sugar
1 c unsweetened applesauce (Homemade is the best!)
2 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 c chocolate chips (raisins or nuts or a mix of all to equal 1 cup)
1 Preheat the oven to 375 and line baking sheets with parchment or silpats, set aside.
2 Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg then add the applesauce and mix to incorporate.
3 In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add to the butter mixture and mix until just incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.
4 Drop by spoonfuls and space about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and the centers are cooked through.
5 Pour a large glass of milk and a plate of cookie deliciousness and enjoy!
