For those who thought the cookies were too thin you didn't follow the recipe! These cookies are basic but oh so delicious. No changes to the recipe are necessary. Like any cookie if you over mix in the flour or let the butter get too soft they will flatten out. Mine were picture perfect and tasted so sweet with a tad of the honey cinnamon taste. I try not to eat sweets but gobbled up six before I had a chance to pack them up. Yummy!!!! Read More

My dad and brother really liked these cookies. Personally I didn't like them that much. The cookies turn out really flat and have a feeling of being undercooked (but my dad really likes that). So go figure... I guess the verdict isn't clear on this one: jury's divided. Read More

The only reason this got four stars is that it spread wayyy too much. I would suggest to spread the batter in a 9"x13"x2" (height) pan and then cut them up and serve them as bars. It tastes just as good but you prevent the cookies from spreading out all over the place! Read More

The children were taking and eating them by the handfuls and the adults were standing by the trays eating them. They were a big hit! Read More

These cookies are soft and chewy but almost taste like a ginger snap. They are simply wonderful. Easy to make and easy to bake. The batch isn't huge which is good for our waistlines but double it if you want to feed people than a few. Read More
