2 dozen cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)

"While visiting Seattle, I noticed that many of the bakeries were selling large cake-like cookies, some topped with a white glaze. They were soft and delicious. After playing around with ratios found in various recipes for cookies and quick-breads from Cooking Light, I came up with this recipe." CL Reader.

I had written a generally positive review after making these yesterday but am changing it now. After about two hours, these cookies (which were tasty when they first cooled) turned wet and gummy. They're edible, but barely. Something is wrong here, and I don't think it's in my cooking!
