I can’t bake these today, but here’s a recipe that sounds good — Jan Norris’s Favorite Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies.
Update: I never got around to making Jan Norris’s applesauce cookies, and it appears the link no longer works. Given that, here’s a link to the Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies on Six Sisters’ Stuff. The recipe calls for a lot of applesauce and reviews are pretty good. Chocolate chips are optional!
At some point in the very near future I will bake a batch and note any modifications. This seems to be one of those cookies that everyone modifies.
