Carrot Applesauce Cookies



I replaced some of the butter and sugar with apple sauce in this cookie recipe.
1/4 C. Butter, soft
3/4 C. Sugar
1 Egg
1 C. Carrot, grated [or you can microwave them for a 3 minutes and whizz them for few seconds in the food processor]
1/2 C. Apple Sauce
2 T. Milk
1 t. Vanilla

2 C. Flour [I use wholewheat]
1 1/2 C. Rolled oats
2 t. Baking powder
1/4 t. Salt
1 t. Cinnamon
1 C. Raisins [or half and half raisins and small chocolate chips]

1. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg. Add carrot, apple sauce, milk and vanilla.
2. Mix in remaining ingredients. Drop 2 tablespoon-sized dough balls onto greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with fork.
3. Bake in pre-heated oven [375°F] until lightly browned, approximately 12–15 minutes.

Let stand a couple of minutes before placing them on a rack to cool. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

This time I used mini Smarties which my kid loves. I personally don't like the multi-coloured nature of the little cookies when they come out the oven though.
