People cry of happiness when I make these cookies. Add a little bit more sugar and cut the frosting ingredients in half and you will have delicious cinnamon shortbread cookies.
I wasn't impressed. The cookies were kind of hard after baking. I don't mean crisp either. I won't make again.
I LOVED these cookies. They go good with the brown sugar frosting (http://cookie.allrecipes.com/AZ/BrwnSgrFrst.asp). Just dip them in the frosting and wha-la! YUMMY COOKIES....
These cookies are excellent! I was looking for a butter cookie recipe, but decided to try these instead. So glad I did! Thanks!
Wonderful, light cinnamon flavor, and easy to make. A nice addition to my spiced cookie holiday platter. Great as a tea cookie or frosted.
one word... YUMMY!! I thought the dough was so nice to work with. I took out pieces of dough from the fridge to cut cookies with, and when I ran out I grabbed more as I went along..... MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM....... lovely
I did not like these cookies. They're ok while eating them, but I found them to leave an unpleasant cinnamon-salty aftertaste. However, it could just be me. My husband liked them, so he took the remainder of the batch to work with him: 2 of his coworkers loved them so much they have asked for the recipe. My sister also declared them to be "yummy". I definately recommend frosting them, as the cookies themselves are not too sweet.
I thought that these cookies provided a nice variation from the standard butter cookie. The delicate cinnamon flavor makes them a very festive holiday cookie. The dough was reasonably easy to work with, though it did soften up before I could finish the half batch I made and I had to briefly return it to the refrigerator before continuing. After rolling them out, I cut them with a small star cookie cutter. I did not make the frosting with it, so I'm not sure how that would have turned out. All in all, very good and will make again.
