"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 ..." See more... I just scooped them out by tablespoons and flattened them, but they would have been excellent "cutter cookies" ... thanks!"
