Peanut butter cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Mix the first four ingredients together. You can use an electric mixer if you have one handy, but it’s okay if not. Mix in margarine and peanut butter, then the applesauce and soy or almond milk. You should mix together the baking soda and salt with the flour before adding it to the mixture, so you don’t get clumps.
  3. Make 1” balls, drop them onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and use a fork to make a cross-hatch pattern.
  4. Bake for 9-11 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like them.
