  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. I have a funny feeling there will still be a ton of parchment paper when the apocalypse happens. It's as underused as Rick's razor.
  • Combine the applesauce, shortening, brown sugar, granulated sugar, mix until all the shortening is blended well.
  • Now add the baking powder, baking soda, flour, salt and vanilla, and mix until everything is combined perfectly.
  • Now allow the batter to stand for about 3 to 5 minutes on the counter. No need to cover, it's not going to be out long enough.
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, or in the microwave. I always prefer the double boiler method and use it more often than not.
  • Once the chocolate is completed melted and smooth you can add it to the cookie batter. Mix thoroughly.
  • Drop spoonfuls on the cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart because this cookie dough spreads quite a bit. You can make large cookies by using a large tablespoon full of cookie batter at a time. Or you can make smaller cookies by using a teaspoon full of cookie batter at a time. Repeat until cookie sheets are full.
  • Place first cookie sheet in the preheated oven for about 11 to 13 minutes if making large cookies or 8 to 11 minutes if making small cookies.
  • Remove cookies from the oven carefully and allow to cool. If you can resist the smell of warm cookies wafting through your house. I never can.
  • Repeat with second cookie sheet.
  • Serve with a big old "and you'll get cookies....lots of cookies" smile!
