I needed some cookies for a bake sale and didn't want to make the same old chocolate chip version. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. I was impressed and so were the people who bought out my cookies. It appears I wasn't the only one who wanted a new kind of cookie. They are similar to a snicker doodle, but they are healthier for you
