"Ono" cookies

This cookie recipe comes from a friend who is from Hawaii. I don't know what is different about this one than others, maybe the proportions, but it is so good! I am taking you back to your basic delicious chocolate chip cookie, but I altered it a bit. Everyone needs a "go to " cookie recipe, this is it! Most chocolate chip cookies are made with butter or shortening and with in a day or two they aren't as soft and moist. Well, my secret is to cut the butter in half and use applesauce. These cookies will stay moist all week and no one will know the difference! These will be your new favorite and you don't have to feel guilty either!


1/4 cup soft butter

1/4 cup applesauce

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup nuts

1. Cream your butter, applesauce, and sugars together. Add in your egg and vanilla.

2. Add in the flour, soda, and salt. Next, mix in the chocolate chips and nuts. Bake at 375 for about 9 minutes. You don't want to over bake them. So when they look like they are just beginning to turn light brown around the edges, pull them out! Enjoy them warm, out of the cookie jar, or make yummy ice cream sandwiches!
