    Hi !
    I was just wondering : why 2 1/2 cups SR flour, why not 1 cup ?

      The mixture will be too runny if you only use 1 cup of flour.

        I only used 1 1/2 cups sr flour, worked a treat, they spread and were flattish and crunchy and reminded me of the cookies in subway… Now to get white choc chips and macadamia nuts and theyd be just the same but sooo much cheaper! Thanks for the awesome recipe! 🙂

    I’m all for simple recipes. Do you think it’ll still work if I use wholemeal flour and 1/2 cup of sugar instead? I’m willing to try it. I just try to use less sugar as a general rule. Thanks for sharing!

      Oh, and do they end up crunchy like a shortbread or a soft chewy cookie? Hubby prefers crunchy. I prefer soft. 🙂

        They are quite interesting because they end up like a small cake. They aren’t crunchy, or chewy…they are soft I guess…and the outside has a very slight crunch to it. HA! That’s vague, isn’t it? As for the wholemeal flour: not sure. Try it and see…and let me know how they go.
