Bland, Bland, Bland! Cookies had no flavor. They were very easy to make but I wouldn't make them again unless I used this as a base for something else - like adding spices or nuts. Also, don't overcook, they get very hard when they finally cool.

Can't wait to try this recipe. It reminds me of my Grandmother's (she passed away 39 yrs ago) brown sugar cookies. Yes, they tasted slightly bland, but make great dunking cookies for milk.

I cut out even numbers of these with cookie cutters, bake, then when they are cool, spread the back of one cookie with strawberry jam and put it together with another cookie of the same shape. The jam softens the cookies and gives flavor.
