Chewy Chocolate Raisin Cookies

7 cups California Raisins
1/3 cup Unsweetened applesauce
3-1/2 cups Sugar
2-1/3 cups Margarine, softened
1 cup Liquid eggs
1 tablespoon Vanilla
8 cups All-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups Cocoa
2 teaspoons Baking soda
2 teaspoons Salt
1 lb. Mini chocolate chips

Process raisins and applesauce until a smooth paste is formed.

In a large mixer bowl, combine raisin paste with sugar, margarine, eggs and vanilla; mix well.

Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; mix well.

Add chocolate chips, stirring just to blend chips evenly throughout the dough.

Using a #30 scoop, drop dough onto a parchment-lined pan. Flatten cookies gently using another sheet of parchment.

Bake in a conventional oven at 350 F. for 13 to 15 minutes or until set.

Tips: This is a moist, chewy cookie. If you need to stack these cookies for shipment, bake 15 to 17 minutes; this will dry the surface slightly and keep them from sticking to each other. They will retain their moistness inside due to the raisins.

Substitute mini candy-coated chocolate pieces for the chocolate chips, if desired.

YIELD: 100 cookies at 1-1/2 oz. dough per serving
