    I made these, but used 1/3 cup butter and 1/3 cup applesauce. I also used egg beaters instead of real eggs. They were still very good! - 10/5/09

    I made these for Valentine's Day for my son's preschool class - they were easy to cut out, but the dough was really dry, the finished cookies very heavy. I have another recipe that I think I'll stick with, but thank you for sharing! - 2/15/09
