"Let me start by saying that these cookies are very good tasting. I rated the recipe good, because of this. I won't be making it again because I'm not a fan of cake-style cookies. I found these to come out almost the texture of muffins. They are moist, have wonderful flavor, and are soft. The only reason I wouldn't make these again is because, as I said, I'm not a fan of cake-style cookies. If you don't mind that, give these a try. They really are tasty."
