The other request besides to make it less sweet was to make some with nuts. I've already made my position on nuts in cookies abundantly clear, but "the customer is always right". So tonight I added some pecans and left out some of the sugar. Before I got to explain the changes my wife had already eaten half of one and said, "I don't know why they are complaining, it's not that sweet." So I guess that's a good sign. 4 dozen made, but they are a bit bigger than yesterday because I'm using a measuring scoop to make the cookies more uniform in size, but it's a bit more dough than when I did it by hand.
