  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package chocolate chips

Cream sugar and shortening in a medium mixing bowl. Add eggs and stir. Combine applesauce and soda in a liquid measuring cup and add to the mixing bowl. Add the dry ingredients and stir. Add the chocolate chips and mix to distribute.
