Applesauce Jumbles

My mother-in-law makes these on occasion. She always puts them in the "cookie tupperware" Let me tell you you will never see a more excited human than me when I see that beautiful fog colored tupperware sitting on the counter.

2 3/4 c. flour                            3/4 c. applesauce
1 1/2 c. brown sugar              1/2 c. shortening
1 tsp. salt                                 2 eggs
1/2 tsp. soda                           1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon                      1 6-oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 tsp. cloves 

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix all ingredients thoroughly.  Drop by level tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.  Bake 10-11 minutes (Be careful not to overbake).  Remove immediately.  Cool.  Spread with glaze.

Brown Butter Glaze:  

Heat 3 tablespoons margarine over low heat until golden brown.  Remove from heat.  Blend in about one cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla.  Stir in 2-3 tablespoons water until spreading consistency.  Spread on top of cooled cookies. 
*A little tip: put a piece of bread in with the cookies when you store them to keep them nice and soft.
