Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine -- softened
1/4 cup applesauce
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Icing -- (recipe follows)
Colored sugar if desired
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat brown sugar, butter, applesauce and egg in large bowl with
electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in remaining
ingredients except Icing and colored sugar. Cover and refrigerate at
least 1 hour until chilled.
Heat oven to 375. Grease cookie sheet. Roll dough 1/8 inch thick on
floured cloth-covered surface. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters. Place
cookies about 1 inch apart on cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or
until edges are light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to
wire rack. Cool completely. Frost with Icing. Sprinkle with colored
sugar. Let icing dry about 2 hours before stacking cookies.
Sprinkle gelatin on cold water in 1 1/2-quart saucepan to soften. Stir
in granulated sugar. Heat to rolling boil; reduce heat. Simmer
uncovered 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour hot mixture over
powdered sugar in small bowl; beat with electric mixer on medium
speed until smooth. Beat in remaining ingredients on high speed,
scraping bowl frequently, until soft peaks form and icing is glossy.
