Was a bit apprehensive when I read through the instructions. Drop by tablespoon, bake for 20 minutes? But it is just right. These cookies do not spread, they just flatten a bit so dropping by tablespoon is the right thing to do. This yealded me 22 cookies and according to my colleagues (the "judges") I should at least have tripled the recipe! They were highly appreciated. Some comments: fruity, fresh, like a piece of cake but nicer, low in fat and yet so tasty. They all gave them five stars even the not so "waist-line" minded. Personally I thought they were very tasty and easy to make. I can not say if they keep well, they were all gone within two hours. Thanks for posting. made for My-Three-Chefs, June '08.
