Chocolate Cookies

Submitted by: MARYMMM

Introduction

I had a chocolate attack so I revised an old favorite. I added about 1 tablespoon of orange zest but you could add instant coffee mixed with the applesauce or add cinnamon or whatever flavor you fancy.

Ingredients

    6 Tablespoons salted butter
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    4 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 cup white flour
    6 tablespoons cocoa powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, applesauce and vanilla, blend well. (If you are adding zest, add it now.) Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Blend dry into wet ingredients. Mix in nuts. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees 8 to 9 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies will puff and flatten when cool. Let sit 1 minute or more before removing to wire rack.

Makes about 39 cookies.
