This is a good cookie; I made a few changes to fit my tastebuds (less fat, less sweetness); I reduced shortening by 1/2 cup and instead added 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce. I omitted 1 cup of regular sugar and added 1/2 cup of splenda. I only used 1/2 tsp salt because I reduced the sweetness. I got 40 cookies that baked up really well. Because of the changes to the recipe the cookies came out at 90 calories. Made for Sweet Traditions Tag
