Yummy cookies! Instead of the nuts I added 1 cup coconut and I also replaced the applesause with mashed apricots. My non-vegan family members loved them, and my daughter wants the recipe so she can make more. I also used flax + very warm water for the egg replacer.  These are even more yummy with a thin glaze that I made just using some powdered sugar and silk milk.  :)>>>


So i just made these cookies, and these taste just like autumn! the apple and the spice is great. I halved the recipe at the suggestion of another review, and i still have a ton of cookies! listening to the same person, i just used butter and no shortening, and these "cookies" are super cake-like, i'm going to call them muffin tops. i dont know if that was because of no shortening or what, but i wouldnt call these little guys cookies exactly but they are still great!


These are really good! They're so light and fluffy.  Pretty high in fat though.  I cut the whole recipe in half and  I used all margarine instead of shortening and butter.  I could really taste the margarine in the cookies.  Next time I'll probably add more applesauce and use less fat.


I've also made these with a mix of unbleached white flour and whole wheat flour with great results. :)
