How to make chewy chocolate chip cookies with applesauce

These cookies barely take 10 minutes to throw together and couldn’t be any easier.

First, combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl and whisk until combined.

In another bowl, beat the brown sugar, white sugar, applesauce, softened butter, and vanilla extract.

The applesauce is key here for the fluffiness in the cookies!

Add eggs and beat well.

Add the dry ingredients and beat until well combined.

Stir or mix in chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet.

Bake 10-13 minutes and enjoy!

I also tried freezing this dough raw and making individual cookies whenever I wanted one.

These are great to have on hand in the freezer for a quick treat!

I love freezing extra cookie dough whenever I make chocolate chip cookies.

Trust me, your future self will thank you!

Made these for a cookie exchange. I didn't win, but they did stay very chewy, which is what I was going for. I've learned I need some visual pop to do better at a cookie exchange. When you have 20 cookies to pick from at the event, you could have the best cookie there, but need a way to make sure everyone tries it. Thought I was going to need a double batch, but learned afterwards, one batch is plenty big. Double batch made enough for 2 cookie events and still had leftovers to share. While good, the cookie taste wasn't exactly what I had in my mind. My non-cooking self isn't exactly sure what I might tweak though. Staying chewy after cooled was great and I loved they stayed plump and didn't flatten as much as others often do. Gets a 4 out of 5 with me and was a lot better than taking pre-made cookies to the Christmas events.
