  3. Add in the applesauce and vanilla to your mix now and blend it all together.
  4. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir this mixture into your cocoa batter with a wooden spoon.

The dough can be a little sticky to work with. If you find that it is too sticky just chill the dough in the refrigerator first.  After baking you can store your cookies in a tightly covered container to maintain their freshness.
