  • 5 Tbsp Unsalted butter, softened to room temperature (or vegan butter)
  • 1/3 Cup + 2 Tbsp Raw organic cane sugar, divided (or regular white sugar)
  • 2 Tbsp Unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Almond extract (optional but recommended)
  • 1 Cup All purpose flour (140g)*
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp Salt


  • Heat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using an electric hand mixer, beat the butter and 1/3 cup of sugar until soft and fluffy.
  • Add in the applesauce and extracts and beat until mixed.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until well combined.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate 20 minutes.
  • Once chilled, spread the remaining 2 Tbsp of sugar into a small plate. Roll the cookie dough into 1 Tbsp sized balls, rolling them in the sugar and placing them on the baking sheet.
  • Press the balls down JUST slightly, you want them taller than they are wide, and bake until the edges are JUST beginning to brown - about 10-12 minutes. They set up a lot as they cool!
  • Cool completely on the pan and DEVOUR!



*As with all baking, please measure flour correctly to ensure results. Better yet, weigh it for accuracy!
