My cookies get coated with sugar, spice and everything nice! They turn out soft on the inside and a little crunchy on the outside, the dough is easy to work with and they taste fantastic. What more could you ask for in a cookie? —Ashley Wisniewski, Champaign, Illinois

"Did you use the white whole wheat flour or regular ww? I'd think it would make a huge difference if you didn't use the white whole wheat flour or a blend of white and whole wheat."

"I attempted this recipe today, and the dough was all crumbly.

Is there a missing liquid aspect to this recipe? I have never had a mixture that looked like this before. I used whole wheat flour.
Thanks for your help!"
