This makes a BIG batch (2 dozen), so you MIGHT have some left to tuck into the freezer for another day.
1 c. butter, softened
1 3/4 c. sugar
2 c. applesauce
2 eggs, beaten
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. whole-wheat flour

1 t. ground cloves
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 c. raisins or other dried fruit
Combine butter, sugar, applesauce and eggs; cream until well-blended.
