One quick dip and they melt in your mouth. These have always been and remain my favorite. They are such a favorite in our home that I make them all year round, because they have the added advantage of being low-fat. They are perfect when you have that midnight sweet craving or mid-afternoon slump. These were the original low-fat cookie before anyone even knew we needed them! Enjoy, and next time we'll progress to a full fat delight.
