"easy recipe, but way too sweet for us. I doubt that I will be making these again. I don't know if the recipe would work with less sugar, but these were way too sweet."

"These are superb! I had another recipe that called for waaay too much flour and was such a disappointment after making them. But this recipe is the one I'll make from here out."
