It's really nice to find a good basic oatmeal cookie recipe that contains some nice additions. I haven't used applesauce before, but it's a great idea, as well as the suggestion below of adding some apple chunks to the mix. The walnuts and raisins are things I've added before, along with chocolate chips from time to time. It's a good recipe and perfect for when you're in the mood for cookies.

These are the cookies I remember from Childhood that my grandmother used to make. Although I added small apple chunks to mine. Thank You from the older than dirt guy.
