Cinnamon Applesauce Cookies, a healthier cookie, the perfect snack or dessert. A delicious homemade applesauce makes these cookies even yummier! Everyone will love these including kids.
I haven’t posted a recipe for cookies in a while, but when I found Cinnamon Applesauce Cookies in my mother’s recipe cards, I knew I had to try them.
Sweetened with less sugar and more applesauce I guess you could call them a healthier cookie.
Since I can’t get applesauce in Italy I made my own. So simple and easy, very similar to my Apple Pie Filling.

I added very little water because I needed a thick applesauce for these Cinnamon Apple Sauce Cookies. Canned works just fine, but what the heck it really doesn’t take long to make it homemade.
And it is so good and probably a lot healthier than canned.
I have made these Cinnamon Applesauce Cookies a few times, and a couple of times I made the dough with my food processor. Mix it all together, no need to refrigerate the dough, make it and bake it.

They come out soft, moist and almost cake like and you can dust them with a little powdered sugar if you like or eat plain.
I noticed my Mom had written that they were better if you to let them rest for a day before eating, so that the cinnamon and apple would mingle really well together. Can’t say they lasted that long in my house.
Cinnamon Applesauce Cookies
I have never seen cookies go so fast. (actually the Thick Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies came really close).
A friend of ours came over for coffee in the morning, ate a couple of cookies and then came back in the afternoon for another coffee and another couple of cookies. He said they were that good. Enjoy!
