These cookies are every bit as hearty and spicy as their original counterparts, but the fat and the calories have been reduced.

Very good. I used regular brown sugar, but otherwise made as directed. I refrigerated the dough overnight and made the cookies in the morning - as these were for a gathering. I only got about 2 dozen cookies but my cookie balls were probably bigger than 1 inch. I am serving these cookies with strawberries for a nice healthy treat. These are very good and not as sweet as other cookies which will go wonderful with fruit. Thanks for sharing.
