  • Be sure to allow cookies to cool before serving, so they maintain their shape

    Very satisfying dessert for this couple on a heart healthy/diabetes friendly diet. I did add cinnamon and a few walnuts. I firmly pressed the mixture into the bottom of a biscuit cutter to compact and form a perfect looking cookie. This recipe is a winner.
