Delicately flavored with herbs and spices, the uniqueness of these cookies intrigues all. (This recipe is from the cookbook "How It All Vegan.")

Delicious unusual spice blend! I baked mines for 10 minutes and they were not as chewy as I would have liked, so next time I'll take them out after 8 minutes. I got 12 BIG cookies with this recipe. I think tablespoon-sized portions of dough should yield around 25 cookies. I skipped the chocolate chips but doubled the sweetener (major sugar craving...) and liked them a lot this way. Good healthy cookie. Thanks for posting!
