I get angry when I see Husband moving towards the cookie jar; these cookie are amazing! I pretty much stuck to the recipe except for two additions: rubbed half a vanilla bean in with the sugar (had some left over from another recipe), and threw in a handful or so of white chocolate chips. Couldn't find mace, so I followed another reviewers recommendation to sub it for more nutmeg. Seemed just fine, but I have no idea what mace tastes like. I could be missing out on an even more amazing cookie, but I don't think we mortals can handle the awesomeness!
I don't know if it's my oven or not (not a proficient baker by any means), but these hardly seemed done after 8-10 minutes. The first batch I left in for 16 minutes after testing with the toothpick method, and although not burned, they may have been just slightly overdone. I left subsequent batches in for 12 minutes and then let them cool on the cookie sheet to solidify a little more. The results were great! Hope this helps the more clueless bakers like me. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
