I had come across this recipe in my vintage Betty Crocker Cookie Book. I knew I had to make them. It has all the ingredients my husband likes. This cookie did turn out to be a hit, my husband loves it. The applesauce gives the cookie a soft cake-like texture. The raisins and spices make this cookie taste like my Raisin Spice Cookies.
Here is the recipe for these cookies.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
2 cups brown sugar
2 Cups of well-drained applesauce - very important!
1/2 cup cold coffee
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cloves
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Mix butter, shortening, sugar, and eggs, Stir in applesauce and coffee, Add in remaining ingredients, and chill for at least 2 hours. Heat oven to 400 degrees F, Drop by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 9-12 minutes until it is done.
