My mom used to make these all the time while I was growing up.
They are moister than plain oatmeal cookies and they have great apple flavor.
Oven 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Baking time is 8-10 minutes
1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1-1/4 cups flour
1-1/4 cups dry oatmeal
In a large bowl, cream the butter.
Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and baking soda. Blend it all together well.
Beat in the egg and applesauce.
Mix in the flour and the dry oatmeal.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Drop the dough onto ungreased cookie sheets using a teaspoon or small cookie scoop.
Bake 8-10 minutes until the cookies are lightly browned.
You will get approximately 30 cookies.
