I made these over the holidays and loved them! They're the perfect texture, and no one in my family could believe how little fat they contain! If you like ginger cookies or other spicy cookies, you'll probably find these a good, lower-fat substitute. One caveat, though: they are best eaten within a day of baking; because of their very low fat content, they don't "age" well. They certainly didn't last longer in my house! Each cookie contains 56 calories and less than 1 gram of fat!
