My husband grew up eating "Jumbo cookies" and asked me to make them for him. He loved this recipe. The butter cream frosting was really good on the cookies. The dough seemed very thin and runny, so I added extra flour to some of them. However, the cookies that didn't have the extra flour were better.

I was so thrilled to find this recipe. My grandmother used to make this moist, slightly spicey cookies and we all loved them! And this is darn close to hers! Thanks so much!

This is an unusual cookie. I followed the recipe as written. The batter is the consistency of brownie batter. The cookies bake up very soft, cakelike, not normal cookie texture. I think they need more salt as well. The people I served these to either loved it or didn't care for them, split about 50-50 so I'm giving it 3 stars.
