I thought the flavor of the cookie was pretty good. But like another reviewer said - It only initially tastes of mary jane candy. The flavor after that is nothing great although not bad. The inside was nice and chewy but the whole cookie had a pretty thick hard outer shell that I didn't care for. Maybe that wouldn't happen if it wasn't rolled in sugar? I followed the recipe exactly. I was unsure about using the full amount of the dry mixture cause the dough got pretty crumbly and tough to mix but I did. I think if I make this recipe again I will use less dry ingredients and not roll in sugar before baking. I also wonder how this dough would work for cutouts? All in all this cookie isn't bad it's just not the fantastic cookie I was hoping for.

These had a very unusual taste. The texture out of the oven was not good at all. The texture got better with time though. I just think I like more tradition flavor of cookies. Will not make these again. was hoping for something new and delicious but these aren't it.

I wanted something a little different and with some nutritional value for my toddlers. This recipe sounded great. I substitued 1/2 of the flour for whole wheat and skipped rolling them in sugar at the end and they are still wonderful. My 16-month old twins LOVED THEM (and I ate a few too ;-)
