I had some leftover shortening left over from another recipe that I needed to use up, so I changed up some ingredients in another recipe to create these yummy cookie bites.  The cinnamon flavour mixes so well with the apples and oats.  These ingredients combine to form a collection of crumbly but delicious cookie bites!  I hope that you enjoy these as much as my husband and I do.
