Yummy! I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening because that's what I had, and an extra 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon because we love cinnamon. I also added an additional 1/2 cup of flour because the dough looked very sticky. It ended up being very soft dough, but not at all sticky so was just fine to work with. Also, because I was feeling especially lazy, I just dumped the dry ingredients into the mixing bowl without stirring them together first. Thankfully, the cookies did not seem to suffer for it! I got 20 cookies out of the recipe (we like big ones!) and they were perfect and soft after 10 minutes in the oven. My cookies actually did not spread more than any other cookie dough- I suspect the extra flour and the shortening helped (cookies baked with shortening do not spread as much). In the future when I make these delicious, soft, spicy cookies, I will use part shortening and the additional 1/2 cup flour.
