  • If need be, stir in another tablespoon or so of applesauce to moisten the mixture. The dough should be rather stiff, but hold together easily. Sir in the dried fruit of choice.
  • Drop by slightly rounded tablespoons onto a parchment-lined or lightly oiled baking sheet, Flatten slightly  to form cookies that are about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. If you'd like, press an almond into the center of each.
