This recipe is very close to our Great
Grammy Russell's applesauce cookie. She lived in Willard, Ohio. We
requested these cookies for all visits. She still made them at age
93. They were our favorites. I am going to dig out her faded, hand
written recipe and compare it to yours. I am so thrilled to find
your recipe. I will share it with the family. From Mary Russell
