Survival Cookies

This is a hearty and healthy cookie that can be eaten as a snack. Feel free to experiment with the recipe, consider using agave nectar instead of sugar, and 1/4 cup applesauce instead of shortening, if you're feeling creative. Note that honey and applesauce soften cookies more than butter does.
