    This recipe does belong on this site. A healthy diet involves occasional, portion-controlled "treat foods", but it's very difficult to control the portion if you have no idea what the calories are. That's what the recipe calculator is FOR. One of these cookies is a reasonable dessert. - 7/30/09

    I'm sorry, but with a cup of saturated fat, a cup of transfat, 3 cups of sugar, and 4 eggs- this recipe does not belong on this site. This is for healthy versions of full fat recipes. - 6/8/09
