I had to make a dessert for my Spanish class, and it was very easy and quick to make the last minute. I also received a lot of compliments from the class, thanks! =)

These cute little cookies are absolutely delicious!!! I used mini chocolate chips instead of the regular sized ones. My family really enjoyed these. This recipe is a keeper!

So great! These cookies look great and were really impressive. As a college student, I impressed all my friends who never cook anything more than macaroni and cheese. "You made THOSE from scratch????" I would, however, reduce the amount of cinnamon, because it was slightly overpowering. thanks for the awesome recipe!

These cookies are beautiful!! However, I will decrease the cinnamon to 1 1/2 tsp. the next time I prepare them. It was just a bit too much. I did use the mini choc chips, and it worked out great.

These cookies were wonderful! We had a mexican dinner party, and I served these with the traditional Mexican wedding cakes so we would have a little chocolate. The cinnamon in them was nice, and I received a lot of compliments.
