REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I followed the suggestion and used 1/2 teaspoon of salt and they worked for me without salty flavor. For being low fat they are pretty good. Lighter texture and a light chocolate flavor.

I think it's supposed to be 1/2 tsp salt. That's what I used and these came out lovely.

I haven't even baked these things yet and I have to agree on the salt part. I used the 2 teaspoons that were called for in the recipe (I double checked to make sure!!) and I can actually taste the salt!!! I'm going to bake them anyway, but I'm definitely NOT excited anymore!

the recipe called for TEASPOON, not tablespoon... guess you didn't follow the recipe exactly?
