Eggs are omitted in the traditional recipe for religious dietary reasons, but feel free to add them. One egg will make the cookies stronger while warm and two eggs will give them more bite and body.
Honey or brown sugar can be used in place of the white sugar.
Nuts, dried fruit, or vanilla extract can also be added to the batter.
It is very important to let the cookies cool all the way. They are very fragile when they come out of the oven.
