    I wonder if they can be made with 1/4 of the sugar?

      Cheryl, I think you probably could, it’d just obviously be a less sweet cookie…but that’s a matter of personal taste, so I am sure you can adjust!

    I have made these cookies for over 50 years. I use 1 cube butter instead of oil, and about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. If you saw my recipe card for these cookies, you’d know how many times it’s been used!!!

    Cheryl Unless you like cookies not so sweet, I would try your 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/4 up Applesauce. They will taste just as they should, the texture is the same and cooking time about the same. I do that with most of my cookies and sweets. It really cuts down on the calories!

      Good advice, Terry, thanks for sharing!
