Compared to the brownies I made from this cookbook, these cookies were so SIMPLE. Came together in no time and despite requiring "room temperature" butter, I thought ahead (for once) and put my butter out on the counter before going golfing, so when I came home it was nice and "room temp." The dough is really sticky and soft, so Dorie has you wrap it in saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before rolling it in balls and placing on a cookie sheet.
I have to say, while these cookies are tasty, I doubt I would ever make them again. They don't exactly satisfy my "cookie cravings." At least they taste healthy. Definitely a treat to eat with tea, not too sweet. Check out Michelle's page for the recipe!
