These were delicious and easy to make! The whole family enjoyed them. I did have to bake them about 10 minutes longer than the recipe stated. - 29 Sep 2008

These are pretty good, and a nice change of pace from the usual chocolate chip and oatmeal fare. I did not find that rolling them in icing sugar did anything for the flavour, so I didn't do that after the first one. Very easy and quick to make, also. Thanks! - 29 Sep 2008
