1 cup Sugar
3/4 cup Butter (softened)
3/4 cup Applesauce
1 Egg
1 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Salt

Frosting:

4 cups Powdered sugar

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Grease baking sheets. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, butter, applesauce, the egg, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Beat ingredients on low speed for 2-3 minutes until well mixed. Scrape bowl often. Stir in cup of raisins and nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls of dough, approximately 2 inches apart onto the greased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove cookies from the baking sheets right away and let sit on wire racks to cool completely.
