A subtly sweet cookie, and one you can feel good about eating! I made them today, after a long day at work, and wanting a little something sweet for tea. :) I used yoghurt instead of milk powder, and vegetable oil instead of shortening, and it was satisfying and sweet enough to inspire me to write a review! Thank you for a great recipe.
