Chocolate Frosted Applesauce Cookies

When the girl child was a young'un, she ate applesauce every single day.
She wanted plain, cinnamon, fruit flavored...every form of applesauce, she wanted it.

Then she went and grew up.
Yeah, she doesn't eat it anymore. Maybe she O.D.ed on it as a little, but oh well, it is what it is.

I needed applesauce to make another recipe one day, when I went to the store they had no little containers. None! I ended up buying a decent sizes one, not huge...but big enough. That lone jar has been in my fridge taunting me.

While scanning other recipe blogs on a day off, I stumbled across this on jbeanrecipes. A quick scan of the ingredients and I was off the couch in a flash!

This recipe was "meant to be", it used up every last drop of that lonely jar of applesauce.
(and my sugar, and my flour...and the frosting used up all my confectioners' sugar)

1 Cup shortening
2 Eggs
1 ½ Cups sugar
2 Cups applesauce
1 Tsp baking soda
1 Tsp cloves
1 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp Nutmeg
4 Cups flour

1. Cream together shortening, sugar and eggs
2. Mix in remaining ingredients
3. Drop by tablespoonfulls onto a parchment lined cookie sheet
4. Cook at 400 for 10 minutes
5. Cool and frost with your favorite chocolate frosting
