"Made these this morning and they were very good. Yes, they are high in calories, etc. BUT they are very large cookies, 1 per serving. I am ok with having them occasionally."

"These were absolutely delicious and I wouldn't change a thing about them! I first made them about a year ago and came here to find the recipe as I couldn't find the issue of Country Woman where I first found them. Thanks so much for posting these recipes online!"

"How any calories do you eat for breakfast????  One cookie with a glass of skim milk and maybe a glass of o.j.  That sounds pretty healthy to me!!!!

I am going to try these cookies!!!!!!!

 P.S.  I go by the U.S. government pyramid for eating.  What about you?????
