- 1 stick unsalted butter 1/2 cup, room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup cinnamon applesauce
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup good quality milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup good quality semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375F
Line a baking sheet with a precut Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheet. Set aside.
In a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, cream together the room temperature butter with the sugar. Beat until smooth and fluffy.
Pour in the applesauce and continue to beat until fully mixed.
Add in the baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, and 1 cup of the flour. Place the mixer on a lower setting and beat until combined. Add in the remaining cup flour and beat until just mixed. You don't want to over mix the dough.
Use a spoon or spatula to mix in the chocolate chips.
Use a small ice cream scoop (mine was a 1" scoop) to drop the cookies onto the baking sheet, about 1-2 inches apart.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cookies are just golden brown and cooked through. (be sure not to over cook!)
Repeat with the remaining dough.
**blogger tip: to make the cookies picture perfect, add a few extra chocolate chips to the top right after removing from the oven. pretty!
