  1. I LOVE THESE COOKIES! I was a bit skeptical... considering I never like cookies unless they are riddled with chocolate, but these really were great! I ground the flax, and used whole wheat flour. Added a few sliced almonds as well as a bit of almond extract. I only made 1/3 of the recipe this time, thinking 108 cookies would be too many. That was definetly a mistake and next time I will make much more to freeze. Thanks Leslie!!
  2. I finally got around to making these, and DH and I just love them. Think when I bake the other half of the dough I will press an English walnut half into each one before baking as I am confident the flavors will meld well and still be healthy. I coarsely ground the flax seeds. Thanks, Leslie O!
  3. Surprisingly delicious!
  4. Absolutely Great. Really easy and delicious. There was a TON of dough left over so i just rolled them into three logs and put them in the freeze.
  5. So good! I cut the recipe quite a bit to make only 36 cookies. These are very good and I'll definity make them again. They could use somthing to give them a little spice.


  1. I made only 1/3 of the recipe (36 cookies) because 108 cookies is just a few too many for only BF and me! These are really tasty- they're crisp and have lots of flax flavor, which gives them an almost cracker-like feel. Like Steve_G said- a nice nutty flavor. I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose, substitued Sucanat for the white sugar and used golden flax seeds. I made 2 rolls and have 2 more in the freezer for future use. Thanks for a tasty recipe!


I live in Delaware. I have 4 kids and have a very busy life. I love to cook and when I find the time I love to try something new!
