Tonight in the kitchen...

Applesauc Oatmeal-Raisin (& "Craisin") Cookies 
for Jeff
What you'll need:

It may seem like a lot but it's mostly stuff that you'll already have in your kitchen...
And the directions are as follows: 

* Heat the oven to 375°F - Lightly grease cooking sheet.
* In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
* In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and both sugars together. Beat until smooth, about 1 minute. 
* Add the applesauce, egg and vanilla and mix until blended about 2 minutes. Add the flour to the applesauce mixture and mix well. 
* Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the oats and raisins.
* Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets about two inches apart.
* Bake until slightly golden, about 10 to 12 minutes.
*Remove the baking sheets from the oven and cool on wire racks for 5 minutes. 
* Remove the cookies and cool completely.

--- p.s. I can't figure out why the measurements are in white?!
