    Are these a soft cake like cookie?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      They are not real soft but I guess you could say they are more soft than hard. Does that make any sense? lol.

  2. These look delicious. How many does a batch make?

  3. Those look wonderful and I love the definition of a balanced diet.
