These are great, moist cookies! Do note that they are cake like in consistency. I ran across this recipe and just couldn't resist them Saturday night!
If you're like me and don't keep shortening around the house, replace it with softened butter.

What about replacing the butter with applesauce? It is a great substitute and much more healthy. Also adds to a cake-like texture.

I think I'll try these, with the sub mentioned above and whole-wheat flour for all-purpose.

I recently made another batch of these to put in my freezer using applesauce as a replacement to butter. Still good, but it was definitely not the same. I will be using butter again in the future. Good thought though.
