3 cups (750 mL) corn flour
1 ½ cup (375 mL) packed brown sugar
¾ cup (200 mL) peanut butter
½ cup (125 mL) margarine, softened
¼ cup (75 mL) unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ Tablespoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375⁰ F (191⁰ C).
Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and cut in the ingredients with the pastry cutter, dough will be stiff.
Cover the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Roll the dough into balls and space them about 2 inches apart onto parchment paper.
Flatten the cookies with a fork to make the traditional cross marks.
Step 3: Baking
Bake the cookies in a preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown the centers will be soft.
Cool cookies on a wire rack.
Remove cookies from cookie sheet and parchment paper, and serve or store in tightly covered container.
