This cookies are very yummy, however not what I expected. I made a few changes to this recipe such as using 1/2 cup of sugar as suggested by a review and I used whole wheat flour by King Arthur instead of pastry flour (as I have yet to find pastry flour). While these cookies were tasty, they came out tasting more like a bread than a cookie. This could be due to my changes though i'm not sure. Also the dough was sticky and hard to deal with. Will be making this again though.

I'd give these cookies 5 stars for flavor, but only 4 overall because the batter was such a loose mess to work with. I tripled the recipe, with frequent breaks to put the batter back in the fridge to firm up. If I make again, I'll follow Val's suggestion to use less oil. But my, oh my, are these yummy!
Made these last night. I used 1/2 cup sugar and it was plenty sweet. Good cookies!
Yummy cookies! Just made some right now. i made some subsitutions but it came out lovely anyway.. Instead of applesauce, I blended up some pineapple. I used a little less sugar and less oil. Instead of walnuts, I chopped up some almonds. I will definitely be making this again! :)
Great recipe. Some of the best cookies i have ever made. Big hit everytime I make them.
