Apple Sauce Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

My Grandmas good old recipe, they are always the best.  What can I say about our absolutely most favorite cookie?  These are the best.  I make these all of the time.  I double the recipe and put them in the freezer.  These Freeze so good.  In fact in the summer time we eat them right out of the freezer for a cold snack.  No, we still have our teeth.  These cookies are very moist so they are not rock hard coming out of the freezer.  I hope you enjoy them.

2 cups sugar (1 white, 1 brown)
2 eggs
2 cups applesauce
