I want to add:
Substitute 1 Cup Honey or 1/2 Cup Applesauce 1/2 Cup Honey for the sugars

Substitute 3/4 olive oil for butter

you're forgetting the need to roll the dough- if you use oil it will be too soft, but I was debating on the sugars :)

That's where the refrigeration comes in. You can still use the oil, but perhaps not as much. I've made the cookies with my mom and we used canola oil. They rolled out just fine. And use applesauce as an oil substitute and the honey for the sugars. They'll work as well. Thanks for the recipe.

Last nite I followed part of your recipe. I rolled up like a jelly roll and chilled.
