  • Start by adding your peanut butter to a medium bowl. Then, mix in the baking soda, sugar, flour, applesauce, vanilla, and salt.
  • Give it a good stir, until everything is well combined into a dough.
  • Place the dough in the fridge for about one hour to cool.
  • Once the dough is chilled, spray your baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Roll the dough into small balls, and place them in rows on the cookie sheet. Now get a fork and add in some crisscrosses to flatten the cookies a little.
  • Put into oven at 350 degrees (F) for 10 minutes.
  • Once they are done, take out and let cool completely. They are fragile when first baked. So let them cool and harden up before removing from the cookie sheet.
  • Once cooled, enjoy! Or you can even crumble them on top of a favorite dessert. Enjoy.
