This cookies was very much enjoyed at a Halloween fest. Since the recipe uses brown sugar, it is not too sweet. However, the cookie is quite "springy", and it would be best to flatten or spread out the dough on the cookie sheet prior to baking (then they won't look like orange "rocks").

This recipe turned out well and my co-workers loved it when I made it for Halloween. I would describe this more as a "drop muffin" than a cookie. The tip about "ageing" the cookies a day is right on the mark.
