These puff up a lot during baking. So started to make them smaller after the first ones came out of the oven. I miss read and used 1/2 tsp of salt, sounds like that was the right thing to do.

I have found these cookies to be a little salty tasteing so instead of 1/2 tablespoon I use a 1/2 teaspoon.They are great.

These were the worst tasting cookies i've ever eaten! Too salty, not sweet enough and in your recipe you do not use any butter or margarine. And in the recipe you say baking soda, but in the instructions you state baking powder which is it! I will not reccommend this recipe to my worst enemy.

These were pretty okie. They were chewy, soft and nice, the only problem was the salt. I added 1/2 tsp. and still feel it's more. I'd suggest to use 1/4 tsp. I baked these in 3.5 minutes !

This is a good go-to recipe for cookies: quick, few ingredients, short bake time. I doubled the chocolate chips and still thought they could use more... but I love chocolate! Be sure to bake them right away--my first round in the oven came out great, but the second round seemed a little flatter. Didn't realize they were lower in fat, but that makes sense since there's no butter, oil or shortening in the recipe. These cookies were devoured within 24 hours in a house of three, if that says anything!

I followed the recipe, except for the salt, which I only used 1/4 tsp. I agree with everyone else; very puffy, not too sweet. Good, but nothing to write home about. Good tea cookies. Pouring on a little icing would definitely make these cookies guest-worthy!

Ok so i made the dough good its just when i got to the putting it on a cookie sheet. i guess i put too much for each cookie and my cookies were big hard and very puffy. I'm so so disappointed i dint get to try them out. I think I'm better with store bought cause u don't have to worry about size.

These turn out to be very cake-like. They fluff up a lot so spoon them out half of what you normally do. They are not very moist and not too flavorful. I am indifferent with how I feel about them.

These were very good for a low-fat cookie. I wouldn't make them if I were trying to impress anyone, but considering each cookie only had 56 calories and 1/2 gram of fat I'd say they were pretty darn good! Perfect to fill a craving for soft, fresh baked cookies without completely blowing it! I only made a half-batch and it made 16 cookies using my 1 tablespoon size cookie scoop. I accidentally left out the salt, but they were still good. I will be making these again! Thanks for a nice low-fat cookie recipe!
