brown sugar, cinnamon & apple cookies

Last week I posted about my new Brown Sugar Bear and how it rejuvenated my previously hard-packed brown sugar. {yay!}

Today I used my newly softened brown sugar to make cookies based on a recipe that came on the packaging of the Brown Sugar Bear. Here is the original recipe:

– 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
– 1 cup brown sugar, packed
– 2 cups flour
– 1 egg
– 1 tsp vanilla
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1/8 tsp salt
– nuts to taste {I used slivered almonds}

I made a couple modifications:
– I added 1 tsp cinnamon
– I substituted 1/3 cup applesauce for the egg

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Cream butter through sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. {I used no sugar added granny smith applesauce instead of the egg}

3. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the sugar mixture. Mix well.

4. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.

5. Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden-brown.

They turned out delicious! Smelled divine while they were baking and tasted even better, especially warm from the oven. And they could not have been easier to make.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
