Applesauce Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another yummy family recipe! The applesauce accounts for a lot of the fat, so they won't leave you with that guilty regret. They're light, fluffy, and so yummy!

Applesauce Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 cup applesauce
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chips

Cream the shortening and sugar. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl: flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Beat in the applesauce and eggs with the shortening and sugar. Mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. Add the chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. This is a very cake-like cookie, you don't want them to be under-cooked and gooey. Take them out of the oven when the edges are a nice golden-brown. Enjoy!
