    These cookies were GREAT. I did make a few alterations though - added 1 tsp of cinnamon and decreased the baking time to 10 mins. They remain soft and the cinnamon gives it a little extra umph!  -  25 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were delicious, however I made a few changes. First, I used 1/4 C MILK instead of 1/4 C water. Then I added 1/2 tsp salt with the dry ingredients. I also increased the flour to 1 1/2 C because I live at a high altitute (7200 ft). The dough was delicious! I cooked them on my baking stone for 11 minutes and they came out perfect.  -  20 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I tried this recipe...it tastes good but the cookies were crumbly not chewy...any ideas why.  -  26 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
