Peanut Butter Pecan Cookies with Chocolate Chips

yields: about 30 cookies

6 Tbsp soy butter
6 Tbsp peanut butter
1 cup + 1 Tbsp sugar
6 Tbsp applesauce
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp nutmeg
½ tsp allspice
pinch of cloves
1 ½ cups + 3 Tbsp flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup crushed or chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 350F. Soften the soy butter (either leave it sitting out, or microwave it for 15 seconds). Combine the soy butter, peanut butter, and sugar in a large bowl, then beat them together with a hand mixer. Add the applesauce and extracts, continuing to mix into a creamy paste. Add the spices and mix them in. Add the flour and baking soda together, then the chocolate chips and pecans. Combine thoroughly to form your dough. Spoon large tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets, leaving room for the cookies to expand. Bake for 10-14 minutes (12 was perfect for me), then let cool for at least 5 minutes on the baking sheet.
