Carol's Cookies from The Walking Dead
Makes approximately 1 dozen cookies
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 large chocolate bar - I used dark chocolate
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup shortening
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl combine shortening, applesauce, white and brown sugar and mix until all ingredients are blended together well.
Add baking powder, baking soda, flour, salt and vanilla.
Mix until doughy and flour is completely absorbed.
Let dough stand 3 to 5 minutes.
Melt chocolate (I melted in microwave for about 20 seconds and mixed until thoroughly smooth.)
Add chocolate to dough and incorporate into mixture.
Place golf ball size dollops of dough (I used ice cream spoon) and place on ungreased cookie sheet and space about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 11-13 minutes and let cool on cookie sheet.
