I must say that I was worried about the texture until the very last cup of whole wheat flour was added. The only change I made to the recipe was using chicken broth in lieu of water, only because I had it. If I hadn't, I would have just used water. It was very much like mixing peanut butter cookie dough--works out the biceps! The consistency was awesome for my purposes. I separated it into thirds and added red food coloring to 1/3 and green to 1/3. I made "original color" snowmen and "gingerbread" boys and girls, red candy canes and green Christmas trees. My husband just HAD to taste one, and he said they were very bland and tasted like nothing. LeeLoo (my doggie), however, is a picky eater (won't even eat dog treats!) and LOVED them! **** 4 (out of 5) star review. I took one star off because they take 35 minutes (supposedly) to bake, BUT I accidentally halved the time on one batch and doubled the time on another, and the doubled ones were burnt black (grr!) but the halved ones were just fine. SO I think if you do them cookie-cutter style like I did (roll out to 1/4 inch and use cutters), you could cut the time down by half. :n)
