When I baked these moist fudgy cookies for the first time, my three preschool children loved them! But I like them because they're lower in fat and easy to mix and bake. —Maria Groff of Ephrata, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 8, 2012

They turned out beautiful, very moist and chocolatey, A little too sweet for my taste, so I'll cut the sugar by 1/3rd, and not roll them in confectioner's sugar. This is a keeper - and so nice and low in fat!!!
