Fresh apple cookies:(adapted by, my mom)


1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 medium apple peeled and grated
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Sugar mixture:

4 T sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven 375

In a large mixing bowl cream butter, applesauce, and sugar. Stir in grated apple and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients right over creamed mixture; stir to combine. Make approximately tablespoon size balls and roll in the sugar mixture.(your hands may get kind of sticky, but I just rinse them every now and then) Bake on non greased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes. 

I guarantee these wont hang around long, especially if I keep using them as incentives.


  1. Some days go like that. So glad you had success. The cookies look great.

  2. The amount of sugar to add is missing. :) woops!
