Replacing sugar...

I need some help with knowing how to substitute for sugar in cookies -- every "sugar free" recipe that I found used some scary fake sugar, like sweet 'n' low. I think that I've decided I will use my wonderful "Just Like Honey," (similar to agave nectar) but how do I adjust things being that it's liquid, and my original recipe calls for regular sugar?
Here's the recipe - any help would be awesome! (Oh, and also, doesn't this recipe seem like it will make, like, forty bajillion cookies? Any estimates of how many it will make?)

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

1 & 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup applesauce
1 (15 & 1/2 oz) can solid pumpkin puree
2 tsp vanilla
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of ginger powder

Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, cream the shortening, sugar, applesauce, pumpkin, and vanilla
Mix until light and well-blended.
In another bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and ground cinnamon.
Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture. Mix well.
Drop by teaspoons onto a sprayed baking sheet.
Bake at 350 F for 12 - 15 minutes, or until set.
Let cookies cool on a rack.
