These are great cookies. I substituted butter for shortening. I took them to a woman's tea party and they were a hit. Thanks so much for the recipe.
BEST COOKIES EVER! TRY IT ONE ICE CREAM, IT IS THE BEST!
Great cookies, they disappeared so quickly I will need to make some more.
These were a very tasty spice cookie. The only problem I had with this recipe was it was so soft and the cookies spread out too much. I added more flour to my remaining dough and then had success with the shape and texture. I would recommend these for anyone who likes a chewy and spicy cookie. They go very nicely with a cup of tea.
Good. Probably really good with tea. The dough was quite sticky so I stuck it in the fridge for a while. They turned out a little cake-like after I added a little extra flour (2T).
