I actually started off baking cookies with a different recipe in mind so there were a few changes. I used approximately 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of toasted wheat germ in my cookies. I put in less sugar since I wanted to cut down on it, and I figured that the apple butter and the craisins would make up for it. I skipped the oats since I didn't have any, the salt because the butter was salted, and nuts because one of my sisters is allergic, and substituted raisins for craisins since I preferred it. The result: My parents loved it; my sister and I did not really like it. It was not too sweet but sweet enough due to the apple butter and craisins. The toasted wheat germ did add a certain flavor and texture to it that I thought was interesting. I'm not sure what it was but my cookie tasted more like bread than, well, a cookie. I did not have a problem with thin cookies. You can check my blog for a picture of how it turned out.
