Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies

Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies

1 c shortening
2 c sugar

2 eggs
2 c applesauce (2 c dried apples, 2 c boiling water, let stand for 5 minutes)

Add and mix well:
2 tsp soda
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves

3 1/2 c flour
2 c oatmeal
1 c chopped nuts (optional)
1 c chocolate chips (optional)
1 c raisins (optional)

Mix well and drop by spoonfuls on greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees 10-12 minutes.

Note: I did add chocolate chips and nuts to mine. I also doubled up on the cinnamon.
Use a blender to create the applesauce for the cookies after they've soaked.
