Taste was good, but they flattened completely out & were therefore crispy. Ugh.
I don't know what I did wrong?! The flavor is good but they spread out WAY to much! Will try again and see what happens. I am in Montana and we have a higher altitude so maybe that did it??
Very good! I made these for a couple I care for and have low fat diets and they really liked them. (so did I)
These are so good and chewy for a low fat cookie. I am really surprised. I used all whole wheat flour and low fat plain yogurt instead of applesauce because that's all I had. I was afraid it wouldn't work but it did! These are not for gingerbread men but they're great to satisfy my craving for sweets. Thanks. I'll make these again for sure.
These had a good taste, but for some reason they turned out more like little cakes than cookies, when I thought they would be crispy. Sort of had the consistency of banana bread or something. I followed the recipe, only I used half the sugar, as I do not like things too sweet. I would make these again, maybe using all the sugar to see if this makes a difference.
Just made these and we really like them. I may add a little more ginger next time just because we really like ginger and would enjoy a stronger flavor. They do stick to the pan (I even used a silpat), but if you don't look at the bottoms it's not a problem ;-) I even tried the "ice cream sandwich" version you mentioned and it was yummy too. Thanks for a healthy cookie recipe!
This earns five-star rating for taste, but a three-star review for sticking 2 the pan. We hve the nice cookie sheets that are specially textured (wat r they called?!) and ur not supposed 2 grease those. (last time we did, the pans were all nasty, greasy and sticky until we scrubbed an washed em a million times) So they stuck to the pan like CRAZY!!!! Really good tho, we'll be making these again soon.....even my brothers luv em (unfortunately....I was hopin they wouldn't eat em....>sigh<). I used smart ballance 50-50 butter & margarine mix for the butter for even less fat!!
For a low fat cookie, these were not too bad. Mine turned out really flat...which meant they turned crispy once cooled. I personally prefer soft cookies, so although I enjoyed these straight out of the oven I did not like them very much later.
I like the healthier ingredients in this cookie! I used 1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour, 3/4 cup white; and I cut the ginger in half due to a personal dislike for strong ginger flavor. But the resulting cookie is so mild that I may try listed amount next time! I baked at 350 for 13min. If you take out too early, the cooled cookies are sticky.
