Wow, these cookies are sensational! They're crunchy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. I was on a quest for a delicious low fat cookie, and I've found it. The only change I made was to use egg beaters in place of the eggs. Thanks for this great and healthy recipe!

I made these with 1/2 cup splenda and 1/4 cup sugar. I found them a little harder than I would have liked. Baked for 12 min. and got 27 cookies. Used a small cookie scoop. I think next time I will bake them for less time. Good taste.

These are very yummy for a low-fat cookie. I had the same problem as some others with the dough not sticking together, but I ended up just squishing it together with my hands and they came out good! =)
