This was awesome. I did make a couple of deliberate and inadvertant changes. I substituted 1/2 cup applesauce for the 1/2 cup oil. I only used 5 cups flour and read the recipe wrong in that I thought the nuts were to do in the cookie dough. This turned out wonderful though. When I was soaking them in the honey mixture, I tried to let them soak to absorb some of the honey mixture. Then to avoid stickiness, I put the cookies on cookie racks with wax paper under the cookie racks so they could dry. I loved this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing.

the cookies were delicious, but stuck to the wax paper and the plate that I later transferred them to. They disintegrated when we tried to get them off the plate, so perhaps it was "chef" error on our part. The taste could not be beat!

Everyone loved them at my cookie exchange party! Next time I need not leave them in the honey as long. Thanks for a great recipe!

Very good, great texture. Like a Greek sandie. I reduced the oil because for me I can get myself to use this much fat i anything, especially after looking at the nutrition facts, Wow! I didn't use all the flour, probably due to the reduced liquids from the oil. My only concern is that the cookies are so sticky after they have sat for 12 hours that I flipped them over and spinkled them with the nut/cinnamon mixture. I boiled the syrup for 5 mintue, but I wonder if boiling longer would have resulted in more of a glaze. Maybe next time. Great cookie, great flavor. Thanks Greekgal!

These were wonderful cookies! Very pretty with a nice light texture. Some of the cookies I fully dunked in the honey syrup and others I just dunked the tops in. The cookies that were fully dunked tended to stick to the wax paper. So next time I will just dunk the tops in. I love this recipe Greekgal- thanks for sharing!
