Preheat oven to 375°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl whisk flour (made with the Lee Household Flour Mill), salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and baking soda. Set aside. In your standing mixer bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until smooth.
Add in eggs and vanilla extract then applesauce and mix well. Stir in raisins.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon of mixture on baking sheet and leave enough room between cookies for dough to expand.
