Joey's notes for this recipe:
A friend of my son's steered me towards this recipe. He had just lost his Mom and said this was her recipe.

I have made several changes and they are noted at the bottom, so read clear to the end before you start. :0)

CHANGES: The first change I made was: 1/2 cup of softened (not melted) butter and 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce both and the eggs at room temp.This reduces the amount of fat per cookie and increases the fiber a bit....you can not taste it.
2nd Change: Use Cake flour instead of All Purpose Flour.....You can make you own using DIY Cake Flour by Candy Hummer, found here on JAP.
3rd Change: compliments of Annette AKA greeneyz
Chill the dough, and spoon (I use a cookie scoop) over night or at least several hours....and between each loading of the cookie sheets. Only place cookie dough on completely cooled cookie sheets.
