      So quick and easy to make and they have a nice light/delicate flavor. I used my 1-inch cookie scoop and made cookies that were a little large so 1-2 is plenty for an afternoon treat. Made for ZWT-9 Parting Gifts Challenge.

      Made for the ZWT-9 Greek "Parting Gifts" Challenge, these cookies were an easy-fix taste treat. However, the texture is what gets your immediate attention. They were soft, delicate & almost air-like, BUT yet sturdy enough to handle easily. I rolled mine into balls, but they flattened a bit to an almost dome-like shape. Perhaps my oven was cooking too hot ?? We loved them & Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :)

      These delicately-flavored little morsels were just the distraction the kiddos and I needed on this hot summer afternoon! We tried all of the shapes; I made the "S" cookies and they got a great kick out of rolling out "worms" LOL. I used white wheat flour and smart balance, and just to balance out the "healthy" we shook them in a bag of powdered sugar after they had cooled a bit ;). Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 9, for the Gourmet Goddesses.
