I made mine with 1 1/2 cups flour and 1/2 cup corn meal but thought the original recipe was great. I liked the not-so-sweetness and the cake-like texture. These are great late-night cookies-- I made these at midnight and it was nice to just drop them on the pan instead of rolling out dough!


I followed the recipe EXACTLY and they were absolutely horrible. They had no flavor whatsoever. All I could taste was the baking soda. Horrible!


We thought these cookies were really good. They are on the plain side, not too sweet but perfect with coffee/tea. They baked up beautifully. You could add icing if wanted them sweeter but we actually prefer the plain cookie. Thanks for a great recipie! I'll definitely be making these again and again.
