I like oatmeal-raisin cookies. I've also substituted applesauce in recipes to make a lower-fat recipe. Thanks for participating! I've added you to the participants list.

Take care,
Karen

Sounds so good!! I am getting hungry anyway. i always use applesauce when I bake a cake instead of the oil...makes it light and fluffy..
