"These are the Best cookies you'll ever eat. They are a tradition in our family, and are made every chance we get. Very soft, chewy, and delicious. Just like the kind sold for a $1.50 at coffee shops."
Serving Size: 1 (349 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"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!"
"blah!! do not waste your flour!"
"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!"
"For a cookie that doesn't have any butter, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it turned out really well. I just used brown sugar for the sugar [I don't use white sugar at all] and omitted the salt. This cookies are great with the chocolate chips and a predominantly vanilla taste. They are not sickly sweet. And they disappeared very quickly. And I can recommend eating the raw cookie dough on this one - its very yummy!"
"Had no butter, puffed up but now that chewy, I guess someone who doesn't bake and would buy $1.50 cookie and a $3.50 coffee would like it. Won't make it again. Maybe I didn't follow the directions but I've been baking professionally and non professionally for 25 years."
"Made these the other day and they were gone within 24 hours. I followed the directions exactly and they turned out wonderfully. A friend said they tasted a lot like graham crackers. Definitely plan on making these again."
"Lovely... I used Self Raising flour and no baking soda, as im in england and i wouldnt have a clue what all purpose flour would be over here. they are lovely fluffyer than any other cookies iv tried. my friends had some and all approved"
"wow i used these for my profect in social studies too much salt first time but second times the charm right? "
"I thought these cookies were good. They are definitely fluffier than most cookies (but not like a meringue). I used 1/4 tsp salt and added chocolate chips then I baked them for about 8 minutes until they were slightly browned on top. I found them to be plenty sweet and not salty at all."
"Yes they did puff up and they were chewy, however they weren't really sweet tasting??? Not how I like my cookies. The recipe wasn't bad just when I want a cookie, I want it to be sweet"
"I've been baking for longer that most of you have been alive! This recipe is the BEST I've ever had the pleasure of making and especially eating. But I do agree, there was a tad bit of a salty after-taste, so I suggest that you reduce the salt in half. I only wish they lasted longer. I'm off to make a new batch. Ta Ta..."
