Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add in the butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and applesauce and stir until 'pebbly' in texture.
Stir in four tablespoons of hot water and continue adding it one tablespoon at a time until the dough is moist, but not sticky to the touch. This is usually around 6 1/2-7 tablespoons for me.
Once you have your dough, roll it out using a little flour until it is about 1/8-1/4 inch in thickness.
Begin cutting out your cookies using your desired cookie cutters.
Place the cookies on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.
Cool them, then frost or ice them as desired.
