I wasn't really impressed with this recipe. It tastes like a bland sugar cookie with an awkward spicy cinnamon kick. I wouldn't recommend this unless you REALLY liked the taste of spicy cinnamon...

Thank for having this recipe I have been looking for for a long time, first got this one a valentines day card as a kid been looking for it for my Grandchildren.

Yum. Kids loved it.
