    The flavor is good but a little too crunchy for me. Just a matter of personal taste.  -  09 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great Cookies! They are very "hearty" - probably due to the wheat germ. They have great texture and are easy to make.(I managed to make 96 with this one recipe, using tsp drops)  -  16 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These cookies are fabulous! I have to hand out copies of the recipe every time I bring these cookies someplace. They are crunchy; I've tried shortening the cooking time a little in hopes of getting softer cookies but haven't yet succeeded. I use my stand mixer for this recipe and would recommend this over hand-mixing. The batter is quite heavy. However, it would be possible to mix it by hand, just a little more elbow grease involved. A great recipe for the entire family to help with (esp. the stirring)!  -  28 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
