    These were FANTASTIC, I did sub splenda for the white sugar and egg beaters for the eggs, these were so good! I managed to get 95 cookies, but I did eat enough dough to make up for those other 5 cookies... - 7/28/08

  • Very Good
    My whole family really liked these cookies. The only thing I missed was the gooey middle and the crunchy outer rim of my usual cookie recipe (which uses 2 sticks of butter - ouch!). These were crispy all the way through, kind of like a store bought cookie. But the taste is great! I will make again. - 7/15/12
