    The dough was too dry to come together, but I added 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce, and it made a beautiful dough, and delicious cookies that were moist inside.

    These are very yummy for a low-fat cookie. I had the same problem as some others with the dough not sticking together, but I ended up just squishing it together with my hands and they came out good! =)

    These were fantastic. I made them gluten-free and vegan (subbed silken tofu for egg), but they were not dry. I even got compliments from extended family members who are not used to vegan or gluten-free food. The batter was difficult to stir. I have weak wrists, so I recruited my husband's help. Other than that, they were easy to make. I added 1/4 cup of currants, which was quite nice with the other flavors. I will definitely make this again. The flavor was perfect for Christmas.

    These have great flavor! They came out a little harder than I would like, so next time I will reduce the baking time to see if that takes care of it. Thank you!

    These are pretty good, especially when one considers how little butter/fat they have in them! The dough was really, really dry and I had a hard time getting it to stick together, but other than that they were simple to make. I absolutely love molasses cookies, so I am grateful for a lower fat rendition of an old favorite! Thanks.
