I used all butter since I didn't have any butter flavored shortening, also, I halved the recipe. They are good cookies, they remind me of spice cake somewhat of which I am not a fan, but I'll definitely finish these off. My only two observations: Firstly, the recipe says to drop rounded teaspoonfuls, which is WAY too little, more like rounded TABLESPOONFULS. Once I realized the error, I used the cookie scoop that I bought which is about a #40 disher which is 1.5 tablespoons (go to wikipedia and look up scoop utensil for disher sizes), and that was much more appropriate. Secondly, for those of you having trouble with them falling apart, my guess is that they were not baked long enough. I put in two cookie sheets, and after 12 minutes the cookies on the top rack were lightly golden and held together fine after cooling for 2 minutes then removing from the cookie sheet, but those on the middle rack wanted to bunch up and break and were still too pale, I put them back in for a couple more minutes and then they were fine.
