I don t eat a lot of sweets but I did make these and loved them. I used just a bit more then 1/3 cup of the brown sugar cranberries instead of raisins and added some crushed nuts. The cookies definitely were sweet enough for me. Will make them again. Read More

Nice and crispy cookies! For 91 calories, the flavor and texture is right up there with the traditional 148 calorie cookie. Didn't make any changes and it made exactly 24 cookies. Will definitely be making this again. Read More
