The taste was good but I found the texture It was almost like...gummy. I never have much luck with agave sweetened cookies :\


sorry I didn't see this question until now.  I am sure you have already made them at this point but for future potential cookie makers, no egg sub is necessary in this recipe.


This sounds great - I'm making them tomorrow! BUT there isn't a flax substitute or anything in it at all?? Something wasn't left out of the recipe?? TU!


the ingredients in these are awfully similar to another recipe i love on here called gunpowder cookies - only these ones look a bit fuller... and the gunpowder cookies spread thin and are crispy.
