Yes, it is a "cakey" cookie. However, if you want a firmer, denser (less-cakelike) cookie, substitute a stick of softened butter for the applesauce. While I do sub applesauce often b/c it lowers the fat content...it also changes the texture of baked goods, creating a spongey texture. You can also do 1/4 c. applesauce, 1/4 cup butter or oil. I increased the spices and added 1/2 tsp. of ginger, too. A browned butter icing is yummy drizzled over tops. Just brown a bit of butter until it's nutty brown and beat in a bit of powdered sugar until it's your desired consistancy. Next time I make these, I will sandwich them with marshmallow fluff beat with cream cheese. Excellent "fall" whoopie pies.

While very easy to make and a nice flavor, I would call these individual cakes, not cookies. The "cookies" don't spread out when they bake so the first pan took much longer to bake and came out in the exact "spoonful" shape they went in. Flattening them before baking helped with the second pan, but still they came out airy, light, and very moist... just like cake.

This recipe is easy to make and was a big hit with my family! These cookies only lasted one night before they were gone!
