I try to have an open mind and not give negative ratings; I made this recipe based on the ratings - however I won't make it again. The consistency of the dough is odd, and the cookies bake up looking very dark and crumbly (as was the dough). After the first pan I had to look through the pictures people posted of their results, to see if it was just my batch or if others turned out looking the same way mine did. There were some pictures with some flat spread out cookies - definately not what I have with this recipe! I added some water to the dough, it was so crumbly when mixing. When baking, the oil was running out of the cookies, all over the pan. I think the result of not having any flour in the mix. The 'blossoms' turned out in nice ball shapes, and after pushing a kiss into the center of each, they look very nice, yet because they are somewhat crumbly, I was trying to reshape them a bit, so as they didn't totally fall apart. After completely cooling, the cookies do set up becoming pretty firm and not as fragile as they appear to be when first done. The doughy look is deceiving, so I cooked mine a little longer which resulted in pretty dark bottoms. The taste is good, but I think I prefer the taste of the standard cookie which has flour and baking powder in the recipe. My husband has so far avoided trying them, going for the other standard recipes I'm making in my baking this season. I hope he tries one eventually, I can't eat them all on my own or toss them.
