iced applesauce oatmeal cookies.

yet another cookie from martha stewart’s cookies.  i’ve made these in the past and they’re very moist and chewy.  for some reason the icing doesn’t come out like the picture shows and i think i’ve decided that i like them better without the icing altogether.  i also wonder sometimes if my cookies would come out differently if i didn’t waste time during the cooking process taking pictures { you know, like letting something mix for 7 minutes versus the 3 it calls for because i can’t find my 30mm lens }.  hmm…i should work on that.
