Chewy Applesauce and Peanut Butter Cookies

Chewy Applesauce and Peanut Butter Cookies

Moist in the inside and chewy on the outside, the combination of applesauce and peanut butter makes these cookies absolutely tasty and addictive.

These cookies came out fairly decent. Unlike the buttery cookies with flakey texture, these cookies were super moist on the inside because of the applesauce, and tasted like a cake with a nice golden-brown thin crust.

I really enjoyed these cookies packed with peanut butter flavor, not super fatty or deadly sweet, just right amount of everything.

Maybe will add some chocolate chips and/or walnuts next time to give a bit decadence!

I followed the recipe, carefully measuring the ingredients and the result was a sticky glob of dough. I baked 6 and they were the most horrible peanut butter cookies I have ever tasted. I'll stick to my "traditional" recipe.

Nell, sorry to hear that these cookies didn't come out well at all. The recipe sounds ok, I will give it a try soon, and let you know how mine turn out. We have lots of other excellent peanut butter cookies, hope you can find some better ones. Happy Baking :-)
