    These start out soft like a typical applesauce cookie but then get chewier as you eat them. They were okay.

    Delicious! I have been searching for a healthy alternative to another TOH spice cookie that we've always loved. This is it. I was concerned with how runny the batter was however, so I added an additional 3/4 cup of flour to make a stiffer dough.
