packed brown sugar
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.
It was only okay for me. Found them simple in flavour and boring. I will add chocolate chips next time.
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.
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!
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.
Good cookies, reminds me of a snickerdoodle. Though definitely does not make 6 dozen! I made 1inch balls and it just made 3 dozen. But flavor wise they are good.
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. ;)
Very yummy cookies! I used the coffee icing also found on this website and the two combined made a delicious treat. Not sure if I will have any left to share with the family. :)
