These cookies were awesome...I don't know what the other raters did to make them taste so bad but I did exactly what the recipe said and they came out really good...They weren't too much like cookies, more like little fluffy breads, but I sandwiched two with cream cheese and it was soooo yummmy!

This would make a better muffin than a cookie. Add 1/4 cup of applesauce to sweeten it up a bit.

My rating for this recipe would be "0" stars if possible. I will have to agree with Sheila; there is something missing in this recipe. "Taste" There is none.

Not bad,but I substituted the potato with fresh bay scallops.

I goofed and melted the butter, not being much of a cook, I didn't realize that softened butter and melted aren't the same thing. It was a good mistake to make. They made wonderful muffin cookies! Everyone loved them. Also, as I cannot eat wheat, I subbed Bob's Red Mill Wheat and Gluten Free Flour and had great results.

Add a 1/2 cup raisins and 1/4 cup pecans and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar!
