I made these cookies for the second time recently, and made a few changes. I used about 2 3/4 cups flour, just 1 cup of brown sugar, and for the eggs (I didn't have any) I used 1/2 cup oil. I used an eletric mixer, which made the texture quite delicate and almost shortbread-y! My mom said they were the best cookies she's ever had :D They turned out soft and chewy and had a nice round shape! next time I'll take photos. thanks for the great recipe!
