Grandma Shirley's Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies

My amazing Husband spent most of his day Saturday organizing all of our food storage and this my friends is not an easy task. At one point I went down to see if he was still hard at work and he mentioned that we had so much oatmeal and raisins that they were coming out of our ears. It was then and there that my craving began and the search for a delicious oatmeal raisin cookie was on! So, I of course went to my trusty Guymon Family Cookbook and found several recipes that looked delicious and I narrowed it down to this one on page 191. They were pretty darn easy to make and after the first batch came out of the oven everyone devoured them! My picky Husband who's job in life is to perfect upon anything he can asked if he could add a few things and so I stepped aside and let him work his magic and he created utter oatmeal cookie perfection! He added milk chocolate chunks and around two more cups of oatmeal than it had originally called for. It was so yummy that we even hid a bowl of them from the kids just to make sure our kiddo's didn't devour them in one sitting! You need to try them out! The kids kept telling me that it would be gross to add applesauce to a cookie but have since come around and can't wait until we whip up our next batch! Just a little something to think about but I think they would be delicious with some added orange zest. That's if you would like to add upon perfection...
