Applesauce Chocolate Chip Cookies

mmmm.. I"m really trying hard to come up with the best way to tell you all about my high school days with Jolyn. Should I sell you our secrets about our "out of towners" (our friends that were boys in the nearby towns, wink wink) OR should I tell you about the very inapproprate jokes that were made when we played balderdash. Maybe, the pranks. no. I'd like to keep my records clean, haha. 
I wish I could tell you about what a good friend she was, always there for me through a lot of thick stuff, and a lot of thin. I had a lot of thick stuff in high school and she was there, jamba juice in hand. After my chemo weeks quite often I didn't feel good and we'd bunker down in her house and consume handfuls of and handfuls of calories. Cadbury eggs. Mint M&M's. Applesauce Cookies. Homemade Caramels. Snickerdoodles. all sorts of junk food. 
She was a true friend. now she is half a country away, but for a short time in our married life we lived 1.5 hours apart and got to see each other ever month or so. happy days. One of those times I snagged her memory filled applesauce cookie recipe we made so much. ha. or more like ATE so much.
