This recipe was so simple, I thought they'd be boring, but they actually have a really nice, delicate flavour. I've made 4-5 batches now, and they've never stayed int he shape of balls though, they spread out quite a bit, so make sure you leave room on the pan for that. I also made one recipe without rolling them in the sugar and they were just as good. Read More

Nice easy recipe. Replaced flour with whole wheat flour and brown sugar with Splenda brand brown sugar. Cookies are a light not too sweet treat. Read More

I made a small batch of these tonight on a baked goods craving. They turned out great! I rolled them in brown sugar and then cinnamon instead of white and brown sugar. They were just cooked enough at 10-11 minutes that even when they cooled they were still nice and soft. It's nice to find a cookie I can easily make w/o an electric mixer! Read More

Very yummy! I only rolled in white sugar and added a drop of almond extract to the dough. Recipe not well-written and did not make 6 dozen only about 2 1/2 dozen. Read More

oh man these are good! i followed the recipe exactly aside from using just plain white sugar and cinnamon to roll the dough in before putting it in the oven and they came out delicious! i was in a pinch for a recipe for a party for tomorrow and my original baking plan fell through and these were just the ticket.:) will definitely be making these again.:3 a side note though-- they didn't make all that many cookies though but you could easily double the recipe to get more.;) Read More
