MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 8, 2013

I found these cookies lacked in many ways.

I appreciate the effort to eliminate fat, but that might just be what was lacking. Sometimes all sugar and no fat or fiber as a balancer can cause an un-even taste.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2011

I tried these cookies and found that their consistency once baked, was more like a meringue. In other words EXTREMELY sweet! I did use a teaspoon of batter as recommended, however the recipe only yielded 27 morsels. Also, I do have a brand new stove and they took 15 minutes to bake. In summary, they were okay if you like 'sweet' but I personally will not make them again.

These cookies were the most disgusting things I have ever eaten. They tasted like sugar and flour. I would not recommend making them.
