No need for eggs or dairy in this recipe to create an ultra soft & chewy texture!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt.
In a smaller bowl using a handheld mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for 2 min. until creamy. The longer whip time creates more air in the mixture which results in a fluffier texture. Add in the vanilla and applesauce.
Add wet mixture into dry and mix until a soft dough forms. Whisk together 3 tbsp of sugar and 1 tbsp of cinnamon in a small bowl. Scoop out even amounts of dough using a cookie scoop and roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place evenly on the baking sheet.
Bake for 12-13 min. Cool for 10 min. before enjoying!
