Preparation / Directions:
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter, oil, and brown
sugar until smooth. Add egg, applesauce, and vanilla; beat until
blended. Beat in baking powder, soda, and salt, then flour, until
smooth. Scrape side of bowl, then stir in oats and chocolate.
Bake dough right away; if allowed to sit, cookies will be dry. Drop
dough by 2-tablespoon portions onto 2 lightly oiled 12-by-15-inch
baking sheets, spacing evenly. Dip fingertips in granulated sugar,
then pat cookies into 1/3-inch-think rounds.
Bake in a 350~ oven until pale golden, about 10 minutes; switch pan
positions after 5 minutes. Lift to racks; eat warm or cool. Makes
