Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup cane sugar
2 tbs molasses
3 tbs applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
(1 egg - optional, works just as well without it, although a bit more crumbly)
1 3/4 cup unbleached flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
12 oz chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream butter and molasses with electric mixer until light and fluffy  Add applesauce and vanilla, beat for one more minute (add egg in this step also if desired).  Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and add to creamed mixture.  Mix until flour is blended.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 mins (I sometimes find 12 is needed with my oven).  Let cool completely.
