Allergy-Friendly Valentine Brown Sugar Cookies

Here's another allergy-friendly sweet treat for your favorite valentine.

I had another recipe for brown sugar cookies that I have been wanting to try, so I used it for these cookies.

For the heart use cherry or strawberry jam. Take the cookies out 2-3 minutes before they are done. Use your pinky finger to make a heart shaped well in the cookie. Fill with just a little bit of jam and bake for the remaining 2-3 minutes. Some of my hearts look more like Mickey Mouse, but that works too!
This recipe is free of the top 8 allergens (egg-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, soy-free, fish-free and shellfish-free) and vegan.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the shortening and brown sugar. 
Stir in the applesauce and vanilla.
In another bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
Drop teaspoonfuls of the dough onto a baking sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
