Ingredients

  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup Three Springs Fruit Farm Apple Sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F degrees. Line cookie sheets with silicone liners, nonstick foil, or parchment paper. Alternatively, use ungreased cookie sheets to bake your cookies.
  2. In a medium size bowl whisk the flours, spices, baking soda, and salt until well blended and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar and honey with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  4. Beat in the egg and applesauce then stir in the flour mixture until just combined.
  5. Drop cookie dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake until light brown around the edges and toothpick comes out clean, about 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and immediately transfer cookies to a wire rack with a spatula.
