Another recipe from my old school.  This recipe was submitted to the Marshall Township PTA 1955 cookbook by Gail Franklin.  I don't think anyone of us "Hilltoppers" have any bad memories of Gail.  She was one of the sweetest, nicest ladies one could ever encounter.  She was the mother of one of my classmates and she was also the school secretary for many years.  Here is her recipe for applesauce cookies:

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix together thoroughly; 3/4 cup soft shortening, 1 cup brown sugar (packed), 1 egg.  Stir in 1/2 cup applesauce.  Sift together 2 1/4 cups floour, 1/2 tsp. soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, 3/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. cloves, and stir in.  Mix in 1 cup seedless raisins, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, and drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake 10 - 12 minutes.  Makes 4 dozen.
