What an intresting Cookie! More like a small soft cake really. However, the flavor is subtle and unique, having many diffrent undertones of earthyness, contributing to a nice pleasant taste with a soft chew to it, not overly sweet either, which was pleasant. However, I omited the cloves and ginger and reduced the amount of nutmeg used, and instead used chinese five spice powder. No one would suspect that the secret ingredients was Soybeans (Which I had a 1/4c leftover on hand, hence I made these cookies) and prune baby food!
