 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          all-purpose flour
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      ground cinnamon
      1/2  teaspoon      ground nutmeg
      1/2  teaspoon      ground cloves
      1/2  cup           butter or margarine (1 stick) -- see note
    1      cup           granulated sugar
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
    1      cup           applesauce
    1                    egg -- well-beaten
    1      cup           chopped nuts
    1      cup           raisins
 
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Stir together flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and
 cloves. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.   Stir baking soda
 into applesauce; add egg. Combine with the butter and sugar mixture.
 Gradually mix in flour mixture. Stir in nuts and raisins.   Drop by
 teaspoonfuls 2 or 3 inches apart onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 15
 minutes.
 
 Note: Use real butter or stick margarine. Do not substitute reduced-fat
 spreads;  their higher water content often yields less-satisfactory results.
