Grandma’s Applesauce Cookies

When I was a kid we lived across the road from my Grandma and Grandpa.  That was nice in a lot of ways.  We never missed the Saturday night family gatherings at their house.  They men would play rummy and the women would sit and talk.  The kids always wanted to play rummy with the men.  Sometimes they would tolerate us and let us play but we were among experts and really couldn’t keep up.  One of the best things was Grandma’s Applesauce Cookies filled with raisins and nuts.  Grandma would give us applesauce cookies when we trick or treated at their house.  I still remember them.

  1. I would love to try Grandmas Applesauce Cookies. This looks like a delicious recipe for some apple sauce cookies. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Sounds really good. You don’t often see raisins in anything other than oatmeal cookies.
