Too much baking soda and shortening. After testing the recipe, I changed it to 3/4 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 cup oil and omitted the salt before presenting to clients.
my kids loved them!
The recipe was followed exactly to make cookies however the amount of applesauce added made the batter too wet. I had to add about 1 1/2 cups of flour to the batter so it would not spread out flat on the cookie sheet. After baking the cookies, the texture was fluffy like a cake and they had too much flour. I would suggest limiting the portion of applesauce so additional flour does not need to be added.

They were great!

The recipe was a little too wet, but once they are baked they are mini cake-like "cookies." <br/>Kids absolutely loved them and I would definitely make them again. <br/> <br/>
