These delightful cookies fill the house with the old fashioned smell of ginger and apple sauce.
¼ cup butter or
¾ cup brown
⅔ cup Tree Top Apple Sauce
⅓ cup molasses
3¼ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
Apple butter for
topping, if desired
In a mixer, cream the butter or
margarine with the brown sugar. Then add the apple sauce, molasses and
egg. Beat for about 2 minutes, scraping sides. Mixture will not combine
completely. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add
to apple sauce mixture. Mix until dough is smooth, about 3 or 4 minutes.
Drop rounded teaspoon-fulls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Make a
depression in the center and fill with about a half teaspoon of apple
butter (if desired). Bake at 350 F for 12 to 14 minutes.
These cookies are especially tasty and attractive with apple butter in the center.
