Chocolate Chip Applesauce Cookies

28 Apr

At around 10:30pm I had the sudden urge to bake chocolate chip cookies.  As someone who doesn’t eat sweets that much this venture was out of the ordinary but well received. I searched for a recipe online and came across a recipe that included applesauce. Thank heavens for food blogs!

Not being a baker at all, I of course messed up a few steps, but still managed to create something edible.

{adapted from a recipe found on Tastes Better With Friends}

  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips

  5. Add mini chocolate chips  and stir until combined.
