Betty Greene's Applesauce Drop Cookies

This is my mom's recipe for applesauce drop cookies. I have not had them in years.

Betty Greene's Applesauce Drop Cookies
Ingredients:
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar, packed down
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup thick applesauce
1 cup seedless raisins (she wrote she used 1/2 cup)

Directions:
Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in egg. Add the flour alternately with the applesauce. Beat in the salt, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg and cinnamon. Stir in the raisins.
Drop on cookie sheet and bake in 375 degree preheated oven about 10 minutes depending upon how big you make them. They spread a little.

Arwen, thanks for being my friend. ;-)
When I use applesauce in baking, I buy the one that is all natural--Motts is one brand but there are others.

Arwen, if you go to a natural food store in Italy, you should be able to find all natural applesauce. In the states, a good brand is Mott's. I cannot imagine that it is not available in Italy.

I know those are yummy cookies, Susan, because that's the exact recipe my mom got from one of her hairdressing customers before I was born. She often made those cookies, and so have I.

You're not by any chance related to someone named "Mrs. Bruce" are you?
