Comments on this Recipe

Sounds delish, will have to try this recipe.

Nice

These look delicious - does anyone know if they come out crispy or chewy?

I cannot find evaporated cane sugar in Spain, so what can I use to replace it? Thanks.

Evaporated cane sugar is Turbinado sugar. It isn't processed as much as white or brown sugar. It can be found in the grocery store in with the regular sugars. Looks like tiny brown granules.

How about making it gluten free as well????

These cookies are very good and the recipe is spot on. Mine came out looking exactly as the recipe said they would.

Thank you...love it

Can this be made Gluten Free?

Alma--in Spain you can probably find Demerara sugar. It is similar to evaporated cane sugar. :-)

Made these yesterday and they taste great, but without binder to hold everything together they are a crumbly mess.
