Found this easy tip from Food Network and then I upgraded it for flavor and satisfaction.
This is cheap, semi-homemade, and full of healthy goodness!
The recipe upgrade reduces the 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter used from the package mix to 1/4 cup (1/2 stick); thus, reducing the fat content by adding 1/2 cup of applesauce in its place.
In order to make this a better cookie just follow my suggestions below.
