My friend wanted a less sweet cookie, and this is what I came up with for her. Sweet, but not too sweet.

These were good - but nothing spectacular - they were better right out of the oven after that they are dry tasting. Read More

Yummy! I substituted the sugar for splenda and used margarine instead of butter since it was all I had. I also added a tablespoon of cinnamon to the recipe. These turned out not too sweet and very moist. Read More

Great recipe with a good flavor. A pleasure to eat and a treat to make! Very quick to make would be a good children's recipe. I put 1/2 the sugar in and still found them sweet. Read More

I used what I had on hand and ended up with the following substitutions: splenda not sugar margarine not butter skim milk a dash of nutmeg and a drop of almond extract. I also added some dried cranberries in some of them. The cranberry cookies weren't bad - I really wish I had added them to all of the cookies. They were a little dry overall and pretty simple/bland tasting but puffy and light. Maybe some kind of gooey frosting would do the trick. They needed to be pressed down as they stayed in balls when they cooked. Read More

These were great. I added chocolate chunks but I don't know exactly how much. I just eyeballed it. The cookies were fluffy and not to sweet. My boyfriend did not even mind that I had used whole wheat flour. These are worth a try! Read More
