Excellent. My boyfriend loved it. I actually just put a dash of cinnamon which wan't too overbearing but one could taste it. Very very good, Will def make it again.

This did not turn out sweet enough for me. However, I liked the recipe overall. I just added a little more butter and sugar and I baked them for an additional 30 minutes and they were great.
