Iced & Spiced Applesauce Cookies

Even though (to my knowledge) I have never had these cookies before, I woke up this morning craving them. Succumbing, I came up with this recipe and I have to say, I couldn’t ask for more. Moist and a little fluffy with crisp edges, MmmMmm! If you would like you may leave off the icing, but I enjoy the bit of added sweetness.
