I created this recipe one day when I was feeling adventurous. If you like a cookie that's not super-sweet but JUST RIGHT, this is it. Has a cake-like consistency.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gently fold into wet mixture. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
