Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilda Harbin from home This machine has been of good service to me; after I had my stomach surgery. I didn't know you could use this machine for the purpose of making cookies too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shelvis from This recipe does not work I tried this recipe today and it doesn't work. It is too dry and it doesn't mix properly. I had to add 1 tbsp extra milk, and it still didn't work. I ended up adding an egg and still had to take it out of the Vitamix to blend it properly. The result was still very dry. My kids think they taste like dry muffin tops. It was also annoyingly difficult to clean out of the Vitamix afterward. I like my Vitamix but it's best for smoothies, gazpacho, fresh salsa, that sort of thing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ron B from Hi sugar content Like a lot of baking recipes this has a high sugar content, which we are told is bad for your health. You would think that recipe producers would have learned by now to reduce or provide alternatives.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lola1 from Sounds interesting, but... While the recipe sounds interesting there is no way to print (friendly) this recipe, which makes it difficult for future cooking or reading at home.
