After reading the other two reviews, I made a couple of changes. I added a little more flour than the recipe called for, threw in some semi-sweet chocolate chips and baked the cookies for 10 minutes. They were a wonderful soft on the inside, crispy on the outside consistency. Will definitely make again.



Instead of 1 1/4c margarine I used 2/3 cup margarine and 2/3 cup unsweetended applesauce, also I reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup, added 1/4 cup wholewheat flour and added 3 tbsp cocoa and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. The kids liked these. Thanks for the recipe.



Cookies are delicious. I found them to fall apart very easily, however the taste outweighed the fact that they did not stay together. We added raisins for a nice touch.
