Unbaked Chocolate Cookies
- 1/2 C. butter
- 3 T. cocoa
- Pinch salt
- 2 C. sugar
- 1/2 C. applesauce
- 3 C. quick-cooking oats
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 C. nuts (opt.) chopped
- In a heavy 2-quart pan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in cocoa. Add salt, sugar and applesauce. Stir often until mixture comes to a boil.
- Remove from heat immediately so it does not caramelize. Add oats and vanilla. If not using nuts, add more oats so cookies hold their shape.
- Drop by heaping tablespoons onto wax paper. Allow cookies to cool and dry before storing. If sticky, roll in powdered sugar. Makes 2-3 dozen.
