Applesauce Date Cookies

2 c Flour
1/4 ts Cloves
1 ts Cinnamon
1/4 ts Nutmeg
1/2 ts Baking powder
1 ts Baking soda
1/2 ts Salt
1 c Nuts; chopped
1/2 c Dates; chopped
1/2 c Shortening

Sift together the flour, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix half a cup of the flour mixture with the nuts and dates.

Cream the shortening in a mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar and beat until the mixture is fluffy. Add the egg, and beat again. Add the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the applesauce, blending well after each addition. Stir in the floured fruit-nut mixture; drop by tablespoons two inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 F. for 15 to 20 minutes. Do not overbake.
