    kittycatmom's Note:

    The combination of tender cake flour and sturdy all-purpose flour produces delicate cookies. The dough will be crumbly after you've combined all the ingredients but will hold its shape once molded in a tablespoon measure and turned onto a baking sheet. You may need to add one to two additional teaspoons of ice water to the dough to achieve the crumbly consistency. **Edited to add for a "moister" cookie you may decide to add an additional 1/4 cup applesauce or butter.

      I appreciate that these are lower-fat than the original recipe, but it is really evident in the taste. That didn't stop me and my children from eating a bunch of them, but they still left something to be desired.
