Smarged (hope I got that right): Actually, your completely logical question, makes mine a little silly. I had not yet gone to the recipe pages, but I guess I was just thinking that some of you may have some favorites. But I completely appreciate the links. I'll spend some time on them tonight.
BtheFlowerGirl: I like the idea of making things larger and thinner... I have made cookies smaller, meaning really a smaller diameter... but then there is the feeling that you are getting less. I can see that spreading the dough out thinner, you can imagine that the cooke is the same size and satisfying.
I'll let you know if I find anything particularly good.
just a thought- if you make a wide but thin cookie it will give the impression of getting a lot. if the recipe says to make 2 dozen make them smaller and get 3 or 4 dozen. Italian and other European desserts are usually less sweet than our American treats.
Marriage isn’t like a tray of hors d'oeuvres. You can’t just pick what you fancy; you’ve got to take the lot or nothing. – Cary Grant, The Grass Is Greener

Hi everyone, I could use a little help. My DH loves to have a little sweet with his tea in the evening...he's south Asian, so its a bit of a ritual. I have tried to use only fruit, but he feels like he is on a diet. So I have been looking for healthier recipes for cookies, or other desserts. I would kind of like to use small amounts of honey for him and just have a slightly sweet cookie rather than using artificial sweetners. He doesn't really like things too sweet, its just the notion of a little "sweet" with tea that he's looking for.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Lori
