Cookie Memories of Grandma

When I think of my Grandma Ehman, I think of apples. Any surprise from this picture? As you can see, I was an eager helper from a very early age. :)

Grandma made many desserts with those apples, including these applesauce cookies, which I made yesterday and just enjoyed for breakfast on a snowy Sunday morning in Saskatoon.

Applesauce Cookies
1/2 cup soft butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup applesauce
1 cup raisins

Cream butter and sugar. Blend in egg until batter is light and airy. Sift and add flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Add applesauce and raisins, and mix well. Drop by small spoonfulls onto cookie sheets. Bake at 400F for 10-12 min. Makes about 50 cookies.
