Is it too much to ask for? If I have to use a lot, then I have to, but 2 c flour to 1½ c butter seems excessive to me. OTOH, I don't like crispy cumbly cookies. I guess I'm in denial.

Because it is one of the most insidiously unhealthy things you could ever put in your body. It is linked to so many long term chronic diseases. I avoid it whenever I can. Plain cane sugar is bad enough, but high fructose corn syrup is much worse.
