I did add a little extra water to moisten these babies up and I used two heaping spoonfuls of applesauce as my egg substitute. These were delicious!!!!


I'm not sure what I did wrong, because the picture accompanying this recipe means that *somebody* made the cookies just fine, but my cookies came out like rocks! I swapped out the cinnamon for ginger and the raisins for apricots, but was the only alteration I made. The dough was *extremely* crumbly, and I would recommend adding a small amount of water at the end to make it stick together better--I probably could have baked it spread out on aluminum foil and made granola. Which really doesn't sound like a bad idea.
