How to make cookies without margarine, butter and vanilla extract?

Question by Phoebe: How to make cookies without margarine, butter and vanilla extract?
I am really bored and want to bake cookies. But the only problem is that I don’t have margarine, butter, and vanilla extract. Any of you have ideas for cookies without these ingredients i don’t have?

Answer by Jules
I don’t have a recipe off the top of my head. But if you have applesauce or canned pumpkin (or fruit baby food) and it’s a cakey sort of cookie, you can use that instead of shortening. Put in some spices or citrus zest to make up for not having vanilla.

Edited to add: Oh, and peanut butter is a good substitute, too, for up to one-half of the shortening, if it’s something that would taste good with peanut butter. I’m sure by now you’ve found something to do if you were bored earlier. :)
