Cookies for Breakfast (or Bars)
  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Beat Butter, honey and salt until creamy. Add flour, baking soda and vanilla and beat until blended. Add applesauce until just combined.
  2. Fold in dried fruit and nuts. I used apricots and walnuts but you can choose your own combination. How about cherries and almonds? Go tropical with dried pineapple and macadamia nuts.
  3. Shape dough into a log. I like a bigger cookie, so a larger roll is better. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for at least 8 hours. Slice 1/2″ cookies and bake on silpat or parchment paper, lined cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. You can also make these into bars, follow all the same directions, but press dough into a 9X13 pan or 1/4 sheet pan, lined with parchment paper. Bake until golden brown. It shouldn’t take more than the same 20 minutes. Cool and then cut into 12 – 14 bars.
  5. Stir together sugar and juice until desired glaze consistency. Drizzle over cookies or bars when completely cooled.
