These were a puffy cookie that don't spread very much. I really didn't care for them, sorry.
These are very easy to make but mine came out a little dry. I added some dark chocolate chips like Nicole and that helped. I will make these again because I low the low-fat/low cal aspect. Maybe I'll try a little applesause to make them a bit moister. The first batch I cooked to time, the next I took out early but still dry. I'll keep trying because I loved the flavor!
