Okay, now all the places I messed up or changed the recipe. :)

  1. Didn't have enough shortening, so I did about 2/3 shortening and 1/3 unsalted butter;
  2. Used the pulp left over from juicing my carrot juice this morning;
  3. Rolled the cookies rather than dropped from spoon;
  4. Used parchment paper instead of greasing the sheet.

That said, I think I got a denser cookie than the recipe intends, and that the actual cookie (as per recipe) would have a more cake-like consistency.
It might also be good dipped in granulated sugar before baking, or with a white decorator frosting garnish.
