I was a bit puzzled by these cookies. When I tasted them fresh from the oven, something about the taste seemed "off". But then the longer they sat out (I didn't even cover them, they were so moist) the better they tasted. My ultra-picky boyfriend tried one and said, "It's sandy inside," but my father LOVES them. They are very filling cookies and have a nice, complex flavor. The sugar on top of the cracked surface is very pretty. I like how they're thick and chewy, plus somewhat healthier with the whole wheat. The only modifications I made were adding one cup of brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar, plus a little less flour than called for. Check them early because my first batch burned.
