Wow. These cookies were a breeze to make and tasted amazing!
I made these for my friends and family for Christmas, and I ran into some problems. My first batch were crisp and they stuck to the bottom of the pan, even though it was greased. We added more flour (maybe a little too much) to get the dough less sticky, and to give the cookies more substance. That worked- too well. They were very floury and thick. So we added more of everything and they came out similar to the first ones, but better. I don't know if it was really worth it, and I don't think I will make these again.
Yummy cookies - my mother-in-law was transported to her youth! A little too cake-like for my taste, but the recipe said that! I'll be sure to make them when she visits. Thanks!
They took a lot of time to get the cookies shaped nicely, but they got second place in the county fair! I think these cookies taste great, and my friends and family love them!
The recipe calls for cinnamon and sugar at the end, but then doesn't say what to do with it...I rolled the (sticky!) balls of dough in it before baking, and they turned out great...is that what's supposed to be done??!
These cookies didn't look as "pretty" as I had hoped, and to me, tasted like pancakes.
My family hasn't done their taste test yet, but unless I get rave reviews from them, I most likely won't make these again.
These are great cake-like cookies. I didn't have buttermilk, so I substituted regular milk with 3 t cream of tartar and let that mixture stand for about ten minutes. It turned out great :)
This is a recipe my great grandmother used to use, and has remained a favorite. We sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on the cookie before baking.
