  • Mix the flour and baking soda together in a bowl and set aside.
  • Cream together the butter, sugar and applesauce. Mix for about 3 minutes to make sure it’s combined well.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla extract.
  • Add in the flour mix with the mixer running ¼ cup at a time. Make sure to not over mix- mix only until it’s combined!
  • Fold in the Hu Kitchen Gems with a spatula.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Scoop the cookies into 1.5 tablespoon balls - leave about 2 inches for them to spread.
  • Bake the cookies for 8-9 minutes. When you take the cookies out they should be a little under baked. Don’t over bake them.
  • Pro tip: for those perfectly round bakery cookies - as soon as you take them out of the oven hold them about a foot off the counter and drop them. Yes I said drop them . This will deflate them a bit and give you that more round cookie.
  • Let them rest on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes then move to a wire rack to continue cooling .
  • Store extra cookies in an airtight container for 3-4 days. You can also scoop the cookie dough and freeze it for later.
