Fat Free Gingersnap Cookies - Foodie Friday

Welcome to Foodie Friday hosted by Designs by Gollum every Friday.

My youngest daughter Ashley, is responsible for this recipe! She bakes these everytime she comes home for college and I wanted to share our favorite cookie with you.

Fat Free Gingersnaps

2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups applesauce
4 Tbsp molasses

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together flour, ginger, allspice & baking sode. Cream together sugar, applesauce and molasses. Add dry ingredients to wet and stir just until combined. Pur extra sugar inot a saucer or shallow dish. Roll dough into balls, a tablespoon at a time, then roll in sugar and place on sprayed/greased cookie sheet, flattening slightly. Bake 6 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies, 12 to 15 minutes to crispy.

Yummy - fresh out of the oven too!
