Applesauce Pecan Cookies
A nice autumn cookie. This is a large batch cookie that may be halved.

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup shortening

1/2 teaspoon cloves

2 eggs

1/2 cup raisins

4 cups flour

1 cup pecans, chopped

6 teaspoons baking powder

2 cups applesauce, unsweetened

1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cream shortening until soft. Add in sugar, beat until light and fluffy. Add in egg one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift the dry ingredients together, and alternately with the applesauce, add to the creamed mixture. Stir in raisins and nuts last. Drop by spoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until desired doneness.
