packed brown sugar
2 1/4 cups
I made several modifications and received excellent complements:
Added 1 tsp vanilla; used cinnamon flavored applesauce; decreased ground cinnamon to 1/2 tsp; added 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg &1/4 tsp ground cloves; used Craisins instead of raisins and toasted the walnuts.
These cookies do not spread. The first batch at teaspoon size seemed alittle too small. After that I used a scoop that's a tad over a tablespoon. Baking time 10-11 minutes.
The bottoms of my cookies got black before the cookies were completely done baking, and they came out dry....plus, it lacked something, flavor wise. Not likely to use this recipe again.
First, I found greasing the sheets to be a mistake. It's not necessary and results in an almost black cookie bottom. If you leave the sheets UNGREASED, they will turn a nice medium brown on the bottom instead. Next, I added a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for a little more flavor. Finally, I made a second batch, leaving out the raisins and nuts, which we liked even better, and made them more toddler friendly. Over all, a good, soft, not too sweet cookie.
I just baked these cookies and they are really good. I read some other reviews and altered the recipe a bit. Replaced shortening with 2 sticks of butter, melted. Added more cinnamon, 1/4 tsp grnd Nutmeg and Cloves, 1 tsp vanilla, and used slivered almonds instead of walnuts (I was out). I also sprinkled some powdered sugar on top. Yummy! Next time I will make some butter frosting for these cookies.
This is the best applesauce cookie. I made this recipe and entered it into my county fair (one of the largest agriculture fairs in PA) and won first placein the fruit cookie division. Thank you Julian for submitting this recipe!
These cookies were like cake cookies to me. I didnt add any nutmeg, and added one teaspoon of vanilla. These cookies were even better without the nuts and raisins in my opinion. I will make these again, they are super easy!
Nice light cookie, excellent when warm, and with a tall glass of cold milk.I added alittle apple pie spice(approx 1/8 tsp) for alittle spicer flavor.
They were so very easy, and they hit the spot. I added a teaspoon of vanilla and it add just a little more flavor. It is one I will use over and over.
