Follow the recipe and these are delicious. Sorry, but it irks me when someone substitutes a bunch of ingredients and then gives a recipe a low rating. You aren't rating the actual recipe, but rather your changes. These are light, crispy, tasty, addictive cookies! I will make them again! - 10/24/12
I made it substituting butter-flavor Crisco for the butter, Splenda for 1/2 the sugar, and whole wheat flour for the regular flour. Since they are not terribly sweet, when they came out of the oven, I pressed a little sprinkle of regular sugar into the tops before they cooled (approx. 2 tbsp total). - 11/25/08
