i left it in the over longer...till it was golden brown..and it was deeeeelicious..very crunchy and tasty...the next time i do it, i would prolly use only 1 egg...cause the flour curdled a little...but a definite healthy recipe ~

This year I made these cookies first. When I asked the family what other cookies they wanted each of them said "There is no other cookie only THESE cookies" I had to make 4 batches before they would let me give any away.

Great cookie. Crunchy and chewy together. Next time I think I will add some chopped apricots, seems to hint of that flavour as they are now. They do flatten out quite a bit and will look like a regular cookie after baking

they really are chewy and crunchy! my mom used to make these but lost the recipe, and i'm so glad to have found it again. she dribbled powdered sugar icing onto the cooled cookies.
