I did like this as a cookie. I only used raisins, sliced almonds, and diced, dried apricots for the fillers. It is a sweet,chewy cookie that I'm sure is very low fat since it does'nt have any eggs or oil. Be sure to grease your cookie sheet and I suggest rolling the dough with lightly buttered hands to form balls rather than just spooning them onto the cookie sheet.

This was truly a crowd pleaser. I made mini fruitcakes using three mini loaf pans, and baked for 40 minutes. Great gift idea also, wrapped in holiday plastic saran wrap and tied with ribbon!

Finally a low fat cookie that actually tastes good! I made about 30 medium sized cookies, and added some wheat germ when I ran out of whole wheat flour. I also reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup and the sweetness was perfect. Just make sure to watch carefully as they cook, because even if they don't look done on top, they may be burning on the bottom!
