    For higher fiber, try using Eagle Mills all-purpose flour with ultragrain. This came from a leaflet. I have not tried this just posting for safe keeping.

      My daughter's favorite cookie this year. We made them without the chocolate and put 1/2 of a cherry in center of each before baking and they were delicious. Not too super sweet and great for dunking!
