- Bake 7-9 minutes or until light brown around the edges.

The dough came out way to crumbly. It was hard to make the balls because it kept falling apart in my hands.It tasted dry and if you don't have anything to drink, don't eat the cookie.
Fairly easy to make. I was in a hurry so I just plonked little heaps on the pan and squished them! Maybe that's why they were rather crumbly. They taste really good and the whole family loves them.
I was out of honey, so I used some treacle. Also used low sodium peanut butter. Spread a little sugar-free blackcurrant jam on them - quite tasty.
