Peach Drops

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
2 medium-sized peaches
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup raisins, chopped
1/4 cup crushed pineapple, canned and drained

Peel, pit and slice peaches. Place in small saucepan and add water until just covered.

Sprinkle with 3 teaspoons of sugar and boil. Reduce heat and cook until peaches soften. Remove from heat and mash.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.

In small saucepan, heat oil and honey over low heat. Pour into bowl and beat in egg, applesauce and mashed peaches.

Slowly add in flour, cinnamon and salt and mix until well blended.

Fold in oats, raisins and pineapple, stirring well. If dough seems too dry, add more applesauce 1 tablespoon at a time.

Drop by spoonfuls 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly colored.
