Perfect! I have never had cinnamon cookies before...but after reading the reviews, I decided to try them. I love to bake and cook...I would not change a thing. They are wonderful. Three baking tips: as one reviewer suggested, use parchment paper...they'll be even more perfect! Chill the dough just a bit before dropping them onto cookie sheets. They won't spread thin. (Because of the butter) Lastly, for perfectly round cookies that are all the same size, as odd as it sounds, shape them into squares that are 1 inch on all sides, and maybe 1/2 inch on top and bottom. They'll look like they are tall, but they *do* come out perfect. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
This recipe was super yummy, with my tweaks! I think what was missing for all those who thought it needed an oomph was some vanilla. I added about 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla, omitted the molasses (for an unadulterated cinnamon flavour) and went crazy with 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon. Definitely use real butter. Yummy! *munch, munch*
This is an "okay" cookie with the potential to be better, but as written only merits three stars. Some reviewers were disappointed that this cookie turns out flat and some of the submitted photos illustrated that. That didn't appeal to me, so in an effort to eliminate that problem I used half butter/half shortening, added an extra 1/4 cup flour, made sure not to over-cream the butter and sugar and chilled the dough for about an hour. I was tempted to reduce the amount of butter too and ultimately wish I had, because the cookie still turned out flatter than I would have preferred. Noticing this was missing, I added a teaspoon of vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon salt and I can't imagine how flat tasting this cookie would have been without those additions. The cookie is light and crispy/chewy, with a mild cinnamon and molasses flavor - four stars with my changes. I'd call it an enhanced sugar cookie. Not a bad tasting cookie at all, but if you're looking for the cookie to reflect its name I'd increase the cinnamon significantly. Bottom line, I suppose I could play around with this even more to resolve some of its issues, but a good, well-written recipe should require no changes.
This is a great recipe! I get 7 dozen cookies using a 100 scoop. If you work too slowly, the dough will start to dry up.
These cookes spread out flat while cooking so give them room.
Hint: Spray your measuring spoons (for the molasses) with vegie cooking spray and the molasses will not stick in them.
A very good cookie recipe. I replaced the white sugar with turbinado sugar and eliminated the molasses, and the result is even better than the original recipe. Much more cinnamony without that molasses taste.
WONDERFUL Recipe!!! These cookies are delightful!
I added a tiny bit more flour (after the first sheet baked) so they wouldn't spread as thin. They have a light buttery-cinnamon taste and are tender-crisp-chewy. Everyone loved them. THANKS! I'll make these often.
I thought these were AMAZING. Best cinnamon cookies I have ever had, if I do say so myself. Followed the recipe exactly aside from adding an eensy extra bit of cinnamon, because I really like cinnamon... :] Oh, I put a few pinches of white sugar on top before baking them as well. They had crispy edges and soft centres... Delicious! Even everyone at school and my parents loved them. This recipe's a keeper.
These cookies are unlike any I've made before, and I loved them. They taste like Cinnamon Life cereal. However, I had to cook mine for a lot longer than ten minutes, and they still were mushy and flat! Not too appealing to the eye. However, the second batch I made the cookies much smaller (about the size of a walnut) and had better luck. I also sprinkled them with more cinnamon before baking.
