These cookies have a great texture: fresh out of the oven they are not at all grainy, are chewy in the middle, and are crispy around the edges. The only complaint I have is the baking time: I think they should probably bake more like 8 to 9 minutes unless you like your cookies on the burnt side. Also this recipe makes very, very thick dough -- so no need to worry about that -- at first I thought that I might have done something wrong but no. I'm making these for an upcoming camping trip, so I mixed the dough ahead and made a test batch -- we will use these in place of graham crackers for smores. My daughter is knew to this diet and I'm sure these will make her very happy: she'll never miss the crackers.
