Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Is there anything less fattening to use for the shortening? I'm compulsive to even remove Chicken skin and fat, and cut what fat the butcher left on the edges of meat cuts. Can applesause be used there?

We havent tested it in this recipe, but , yes you could try applesauce instead of shortening, and margarine instead of butter. Just note that the texture will be different for both the inside of the cookie and outside. Let us know how they turn out!
