Moist Cookies with Applesauce and Raisins

We like simple cookies that taste good!  This recipe has been in the family for years and it’s a nice, classic cookie.  It doesn’t take fancy ingredients to make a great cookie swap cookie or special afternoon treat for loved ones.

Regular raisins work very well in this recipe.  Another benefit of having extra raisins on hand is they are a healthy snack that the kids love.

The original recipe also calls for 1 cup of nut meats chopped.  I don’t have nut meats sitting around, so we just buy nut topping or chopped nuts, or whatever is most economical and in a reasonable size package at whatever grocery store we’re shopping at that day.  I have noticed quite a variety in the chopped nut offerings.  If you have a favorite nut I would recommend using that.  I think these cookies would be delicious without the nuts too.
