Simple indeed. Thanks

And this has to be so very versatile. They could be topped with most anything. I have been eating lots of oranges lately and reluctantly throwing the peelings away. I'm going to try this with orange zest as a topping.

Is 1 batch 3 balls of dough?

Because this is cooked in the microwave, the recipe is suggesting cooking three at a time. The recipe should make about 30 cookies.

They're absolutely delicious--addictive, actually. Very hard to resist. And...I didn't mention that they're only about 22 calories per cookie, did I? Uh, oh...
