Old-fashioned cookies made with applesauce, oatmeal, cranberries or raisins and topped with a maple syrup icing. They are a cake-like cookie, soft and chewy with warm, inviting flavors like brown sugar and cinnamon.
For a chunkier cookie I refrigerate the batter for an hour to prevent them from spreading. Skip that step if you want a thinner, flatter cookie. I made a pastry bag out of a baggie with the corner snipped off to pipe on the icing, drizzling with a spoon works too, as does filling a squirt bottle.
I love that they only have 4 tablespoons of butter in them and are packed with all the natural goodness of oats and applesauce! It kind of, sort of, evens out all the sugar.
The flavor combination is irresistible! They remind me of something you would eat at Grandma’s house and make me feel all cozy and warm inside.
