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.
