Applesauce Cookies

If there is one food that always brings me back to my childhood, it’s my Mom’s applesauce cookies, a recipe passed down from her Great Grandmother. These cookies are so soft with just the right amount of spices. They taste like Christmas in your mouth.

A good cookie sheet is a must have for evenly baked cookies. I have these from Wilton and they are amazing. Amazon has them for a really good price too (Paid Link) As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

A soft and moist cookie


  • 1 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Beat together the butter and brown sugar. Add eggs in one at a time, mixing in between. Set aside.


In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.


Add wet and dry ingredients together and add applesauce. Mix well.


Drop by spoonful on ungreased cookie sheet.


Bake for 8-10 minutes or until you push the middle and they bounce back. Leave on cookie sheet for 1 minute before transferring to cooling rack.


Due to the nature of these cookies being sticky and moist, store in an airtight container.
