Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies

Chewy oatmeal cookies packed with homemade applesauce and plump raisins. Yesterday I made some Baked Applesauce with these cookies in mind. I have been eyeing this recipe for months but never had any applesauce in my pantry.

The chunky applesauce gives these cookies an amazing texture and tremendous apple flavor.

You don’t have to use homemade applesauce in these cookies, but if you use store-bought make sure it is chunky applesauce, otherwise the dough could be too runny.

If you still find your dough a bit soft, just place in the refrigerator until it has set up. 🙂

Ingredients:

For the Cookies:

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1 cup (packed) light-brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1/2 cup chunky-style applesauce

1 cup golden raisins

For the Maple Icing:

1 3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1-2 tablespoons water

1 3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1-2 tablespoons water

How to make Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies:

Step 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.

Step 3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars until combined. Add egg and applesauce and mix until blended, 2 to 3 minutes. On low speed, mix in dry ingredients. Fold in raisins.

Step 4. Drop by heaping tablespoons on prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake cookies until golden and just set, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 5. To make the icing: In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, syrup, and water until smooth.

Step 6. Drizzle over cookies, let set before serving.

Enjoy!
