"Agreed, there is a lot of sugar, but it's a cookie, and once in awhile who cares?!

My 3 year old son is allergic to milk, eggs and nuts....he loves to help me make these....and loves to eat them even more!!
I have also used half whole wheat flour as well and it's tasty."

"Our family has multiple food allergies. Eggs are definitely out and it is difficult to find good substitutes. This recipe, while very sweet, meets the need. Because it is so sweet, I can eat one small cookie and be satisfied. We've made it several times."
