Excellent texture ... moist, but firm enough to put in a lunchbox without it crumbling ... not overly sweet ... I didn't change a thing, except for scaling the recipe by half ... still got 18 cookies ... I just scooped them out by tablespoons and flattened them, but they would have been excellent "cutter cookies" ... thanks!

Wonderful tasting soft cut out cookie! I did have a little trouble with rolling and cutting, the dough definitely needs to be chilled in between batches. The husband and kids loved them, they made halloween cut outs and decorated with frosting and sprinkles. Very good recipe!

Good cookies. They puffed up a little bit more than I would have liked but they tasted great. I did sub 50% wheat flour.
