I usually modify recipes purposely because I want to experiment.
But this time it happened out of necessity.
The recipe called for apple sauce, but I didn’t have it.
The closest thing I could think of that I had was pickled beets in a jar.
So that’s what went into these cookies.
These turned out perfect!
The beets worked great because they achieved the same texture.
These cookies are delicious.
And I love the color, too.
If you are wondering, no they don’t taste like pickled beets.
