It's a recipe for great cookies so easily made with boxed cake mix.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add oil and combine well with eggs. (It will get slightly thick). Add applesauce.

Sift Cake Mix with cinnamon, and add half to egg mixture. Stir. Add other half of cake mix. Stir it in. Add oatmeal and pecans and stir. Mixture will be very thick.

Cover with plastic wrap and allow to cool in refrigerator for 2-3 hours. (Overnight is OK). Roll into walnut sized balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet ( or lightly greased cookie sheet). Flatten slightly with flat bottom of glass.

Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven when edges are brown. Allow to cool slightly, then remove cookies to wire rack.

These cookies came about as I've been trying to cut down on refined sugar. I used the sweetness from pure applesauce and honey instead of using any white or brown sugars. I did use a small amount of dark chocolate chips, but upped the raisins. They turned out really good, soft and comforting. One of these cookies every once in a while does not make me feel bad at all. :)

I would like to know how to use applesauce in cookie recipes in place of butter and shortening. Any recipes would be welcome, especially sugar, peanut butter, and chocolate chip. Thanks!

I have been using applesauce in place of fat for a long time. Replace the fat quantity with the same amount of applesauce. This works great with breads, brownies and cookies. I also make my own applesauce from apples that have gotten soft, this way there is no extra added sugar.

You can replace butter/margarine in moist bar recipes such as brownies. Use 1/2 cup replaces 1/2 cup. Also in the cookies that are made from a cake mix you can use applesauce instead of oil. Again 1/2 c. replaced with a half cup. I would think it would work in quick breads or muffins but have never tried.

Yes applesauce work's just great! The only reason oil is used is to keep food moist and applesauce has the same effect. And do not worry you can not even tell it is there.T ry it I think you will like it. It is also something we learned to use after my Dad had by-pass surgery. It is definitely much healthier also I do not even use salt when I cook or bake and everything turns out just fine. Happy Eating, darlene

My experience is that cookies turn out way too cake-like with just applesauce. If you're okay with those kinds of cookies, enjoy! They can't be salvaged after the fact by adding butter (I tried adding melted butter to the remaining dough - didn't work). I haven't tried half applesauce, half butter, but my suspicion is that nothing can take the place of butter, at least for cookies. Applesauce instead of butter is great in banana bread though! Good luck.

Applesauce Cookies

I have looked at both applesauce cookie recipes posted on 10/30/09 and am a little confused. They are both posted by same person but ingredients and amounts are different. Is one a good recipe and the other recipe? Thank you.

(b)Editor's Note:(/b) They are two different versions, both are "good" recipes. Robin has hundreds of different recipes that she submits. (10/30/2009)
