These applesauce cookies are not overly sweet which is to our liking and they are nicely and aromatically spiced. They would make the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon coffee or tea break. My hubby tasted them as did I and we both agree that they will make a nice addition to the cookie assortment that I give out as annual Christmas gifts to some of our friends. In fact if I find other good recipes in my grandmother's old recipe file, I may alter the usual assortment quite a bit this next year.
I will give the directions as they were written, but if you happen to have a convection oven, multiple tins of cookies can be baked at the same time and the time spent in the oven can be cut down as well. Eight to nine minutes was all it took to have these applesauce cookies rise and achieve a nice golden brown appearance while being baked in the convection oven instead of the 15 to 20 minutes as noted in the recipe.

It really has been fun trying out some of these old family recipes. I should do more of it because we have discovered some that are truly delicious. The applesauce cookies look good.

Thanks for sharing this recipe with your Facebook friends. That is so smart of you to share your own family recipes in the ways that you are doing. Hope you have lots of sales on those postcards with the recipes.
I'm glad you are preserving and sharing your grandmother's recipes. I've been putting my mom's on a nostalgia blog I created for her memory. I also put them on Zazzle postcards so people can buy them to mail to friends. You can definitely use less sugar depending upon how sweet your applesauce happens to be. I often cut back on the recommended amounts of sugar in recipes.
Crisco is still available for sale in stores. They still sell it in the cans but also in stick form similar to butter. I often purchase the butter flavored Crisco in stick form when I use it. Thanks for the condolences. My mother has now been gone 8 years. I still miss her. In addition to being my dear mother she was also my best friend. I found this recipe very intriguing because I make apple sauce sometimes. But I never imagined using it to make cookies. The pictures look yummy. I have a sifter, but I just need to pick up some of the ingredients.
I might use less sugar though. By the way, you brought back a childhood memory. My mother used to use Crisco when she made cookies.
Sorry to hear about your mom's recent passing. I agree with you. I have many such hand-written recipes from my family. Glad you liked this. It's really neat to see the hand-written recipes!

So glad you enjoyed this hub with the photos and directions on how to make this old fashioned cookie. Appreciate your comment and votes. This hub is laid out so beautifully with the photo of your grandma and the hand written recipe and everything. The recipe also sounds delicious.
Thanks for sharing it with us. Voted this hub up and beautiful. I read that tip some time ago and have used it at least partially to cut back on the higher calorie oils and or shortening. Like you said, it works! Thanks for your comment and votes. Plain applesauce without sugar or high fructose corn syrup added is such an excellent ingredient to use in baking. It can be used in the place of shortening in most recipes for more healthful results. It's a great way to sneak fruit into the diet! Voted up and awesome!

I'll bet that not only your son, but you will enjoy these old fashioned applesauce cookies as well.

I might have to make some of these as the calorie count isn't to bad. However, if they are addictive I might just need to stay away. I too have a bunch of my grandma's old recipes. I might have to go through them and see if I can actually read them. Not only are they faded but her handwriting has never been easy to decipher.

My grandmother and mother, for that matter were both wonderful cooks. It is nice to be able to see my grandmother's actual handwriting and to be able to touch the piece of paper that she touched so many years ago. I hope some family members of mine will treasure it as much as I do long into the future.

This recipe looks easy and delicious. I am a big fan of not overly sweet cookies and we have several apple trees leaving us with more apples and apple sauce then we know what to do with. I like the house napa cabbage, non-vegan variety best.
I disagree that you can't get decent kimchi in a jar. If that's what's available to you, it's a really good option. I've tried several brands at Wegman's and Whole foods and I like Mother-in-law's best. I do use thatmuch oil, but I do use olive oil. For me, using less oil makes it dry, at least for regular corn. If you are counting calories, maybe you shoud consider something else for a snack.
I am dying to try this recipe.
PBS is a c 3 not-for-profit organization. Healthy 4 Ingredient Applesauce Cookies In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, pumpkin, applesauce and granulated sweetener of choice and mix well. If desired, add 2 tablespoons or so of your favorite nut butter. Using your hands, form into small balls and place on the baking tray and press each ball into a cookie shape. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and bake for minutes, depending on desired consistency. Remove and allow to cool completely. These cookies don't need refrigeration and can be kept in a covered container for up to a week for optimum freshness.
They freeze very well. It might go too far if I said I have conversations like that with my sister as well but I can definitely relate to rollercoster like changes of topic when we speak. Oh and don't listen to your Mum, your pumpkin recipes are bomb! With all these amazing pumpkin recipes appearing on the interwebs you can only imagine how devastated I was when my husband told me he fed our dog his pumpkin pie smoothie.
These would be so perfect for my little nephew! He loooves cookies so this would be a nice alternative haha. I makes easy oat cookies like this all the time! Its awesome that you can bake with just oats and some mashed fruit or pumpkin. Plus the options for add-ins are endless! Dear Arman, I get such a kick out of you two. These applesauce cookies sound delightful…an equally delicious healthy treat…even if there is no pumpkin. I enjoy both kinds! Enjoy your day my friend, Catherine.
These cookies look awesome…and easy! And they involve apples. And we all know how I feel about apples. Turns out little sisters are pretty similar! I prefer my ball gown to come with an actual pie, too. Hahahahaha the ball gown that keeps on giving! Seriously, sisters must have their own self taught lingo.
