  1. I made these substituting coconut oil canna-butter and they were excellent.
  2. Yummy
  3. This year I made these cookies first. When I asked the family what other cookies they wanted each of them said "There is no other cookie only THESE cookies" I had to make 4 batches before they would let me give any away.
  4. I really liked this recipe. A definite keeper. They were tasty crunchy on the outside and VERY chewy on the inside.
  5. Delicious!!!!! Followed recipe to a T and turned out great crunchy and soft on inside ate 5 right away what does that tell ya!!! lol...will defenitely make again!!
  6. Great cookie. Crunchy and chewy together. Next time I think I will add some chopped apricots seems to hint of that flavour as they are now. They do flatten out quite a bit and will look like a regular cookie after baking
  7. Not chewey on the inside. Too hard on the outside. I used special K and it was good but not that good.
  8. i left it in the over longer...till it was golden brown..and it was deeeeelicious..very crunchy and tasty...the next time i do it i would prolly use only 1 egg...cause the flour curdled a little...but a definite healthy recipe
  9. they really are chewy and crunchy! my mom used to make these but lost the recipe and i'm so glad to have found it again. she dribbled powdered sugar icing onto the cooled cookies.
