I LOVE THESE COOKIES! I was a bit skeptical... considering I never like cookies unless they are riddled with chocolate, but these really were great! I ground the flax, and used whole wheat flour. Added a few sliced almonds as well as a bit of almond extract. I only made 1/3 of the recipe this time, thinking 108 cookies would be too many. That was definetly a mistake and next time I will make much more to freeze. Thanks Leslie!!

I finally got around to making these, and DH and I just love them. Think when I bake the other half of the dough I will press an English walnut half into each one before baking as I am confident the flavors will meld well and still be healthy. I coarsely ground the flax seeds. Thanks, Leslie O!
