I substituted 1/4 cup butter and 3 TBSP coconut oil for the shortening. I did not have crunchy peanut butter so I chopped up a handful of peanuts and stirred them in with the apple. The house smells wonderful after baking these. My hubby is known as the cookie monster and he loves these. I make small cookies so I can have 2. If you use a bigger scoop it will only make about 2 1/2 dozen.
