[MOL] Applesauce cookies...........

These cookies take advantage of applesauce's uncanny ability to fill
in for butter or margarine in many baking recipes. In this case, the
result is an excellent chewy, spicy cookie with almost no fat and
relatively few calories. Makes about 36 cookies. Per cookie: .4 gram
fat, 44 calories.

1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets, or line
with parchment paper. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda,
spices, and salt; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until thick and pale. Add brown sugar; mix
well. Add applesauce; mix well.

Add flour mixture. With mixer on low speed, mix until flour is
incorporated. Add raisins; mix until distributed through dough. Mix a
few more strokes by hand. Drop dough onto prepared cookie sheets; bake
8 to 10 minutes. 

Warmly, lillian
