I took a couple of recipes, mixed and matched, and came up with what are officially my favorite oatmeal cookes...yes, I had one as my mid-morning snack. (How could I not taste test before writing it up, and, SERIOUSLY, you would have done the same thing...fresh from the oven goodness)
Heat the oven to 375°F. Lightly coat two baking sheets with cooking spray. Cream the butter and both sugars with an electric mixer. Beat until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the applesauce, egg and vanilla then mix until blended, about 2 minutes. Add the flour to the applesauce mixture and mix well. Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the oats and raisins. Drop rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets about two inches apart. Bake until slightly golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool baking sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes, then remove the cookies and cool completely. Can be stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
Each cookie has 145 calories and 1.5g of fat and they tasted like little cakes, YUM!!
Enjoy the cookies and the beautiful Austin day!
