Some days being a mom can be hard.
This past week has been absolutely crazy at my house. Sick kids, big deadlines, laundry piled up to the ceiling, dirty diapers overflowing the garbage cans, the dishes stacked to heaven in the sink.
We have a lot of exciting stuff going on with Six Sisters’ Stuff and even more exciting things with our cookbook (which is now an Amazon #1 Bestseller).
I had so many things that I needed to do for the blog and other projects that my kids ended up watching more television than usual.
I saw this cute quote on Pinterest:
“When in doubt, choose the kids. There will be plenty of time later to choose the work.”
The next day was all about the kids. We played together, read books together, and made these cookies together. I didn’t turn on the blasted computer once all day long (which is seriously a record for me, since the blog has been crazy busy lately).
They are my everything and I have to show them that.
So, if you need a way to spend time with your kids, baking together in the kitchen is a good place to start. And you can never go wrong with applesauce cookies.
These cookies are delicious and a little more healthy than a lot of other cookie recipes. They are full of applesauce, and seriously taste amazing.

do these cookies freeze well?
If making this recipe ahead of time, you can always freeze these cookies. These cookies freeze extremely well.
If you are making them in advance, we highly recommend placing them an air tight container, and layering wax paper between each cookie layer.
This will avoid the cookies sticking together.
Remove them from the freezer, 24 hours before serving.
