I make these cookies any time I feel my milk supply is slowing. My baby is currently a happy and plump 6 month old! Plus the cookies are yummy!!

Too much shortening/butter in the recipe, it was kinda runny until i added extra flour. Will use less fat next time and maybe an extra 1/2 cup of flour next time to see if it produces a better cookie.
I also like to add more brewer's yeast than is called for. Pretty good otherwise.
